Serving RAF community

As the RAF's leading welfare charity, we provide a range of support and advice for serving RAF personnel and their families.

Find out how we have supported your RAF station over the past year.

We understand that making the transition from military to civilian life can bring a number of challenges which we can provide support with, and should the worst happen and you or a loved one suffers illness, injury or death whilst in service, we stand by ready to support throughout the hardest times.

We also offer welfare breaks for RAF families for those who need to get away from the stresses and strains of daily life and financial support to help with those unexpected and essential living costs.

How to apply for help while serving
