The RAF Benevolent Fund provides support for former and serving members of the RAF, their partners and dependent children (under 18). We also support Reservists, those who completed National Service and widows and widowers and former members of the Royal Observer Corps. Please fill in the below form if you require our help.
To qualify for general support you must usually have less than £16,000 in savings and less than £23,250 if you require care home top-up assistance. If you meet this criteria, please complete the form. Once we have received this, we will be able to advise you on how to proceed with an application or what options are available to you.
If you are currently serving in the RAF, please read this information first.
You can also call our support line on 0800 1692942.
