Local volunteers collecting for Basingstoke and area
The Hampshire/Basingstoke branch of the UK’s oldest armed forces charity SSAFA will be out in force again in 2019 commencing with The Basingstoke Festival of Transport at The Memorial Park in May 2019 and collecting for local heroes and their families at various Superstores
SSAFA provides lifelong support for our Forces and their families. Each year the charity helps over 60 families in Basingstoke, Hook ,Tadley, and surrounding area…… over 50,000 nationally.
“These funds are vital if SSAFA is to continue to support those who have served their country and ensure that they are not disadvantaged by their service. We are finding that our cases are becoming increasingly complex with younger veterans coming forward for help in greater numbers. We offer a range of support from practical and financial assistance to emotional care and befriending.”
If you would like to know more about how SSAFA can help you or someone you know, please get in touch at 07807 668398 or visit www.ssafa.org.uk.
As well as SSAFA being able to assist those in need, we have a need for more caseworkers.
There are 7,000 volunteer workers throughout the United Kingdom and on service bases. SSAFA caseworkers operate in Europe and overseas British bases where there are expatriate communities.
Being a caseworker is a voluntary job to undertake at times to suit the volunteer, qualification is by attending a fully funded residential course and working with other trained personnel.
If you feel that you would be able to give a few hours per week to undertake this very rewarding work please contact SSAFA.
