We believe every generation owes a debt of gratitude to the RAF and their families. To protect the peace and safety we enjoy every day, they sacrifice the normal way of life most people take for granted. When someone in the RAF community needs help, the charity they turn to is the Royal Air Forces Association. They were there for us in our darkest days, so we must be there for them in theirs.
Welfare is at the absolute heart of the Royal Air Forces Association. Our reason for existing is as a member-led welfare charity. By association, everyone in the organisation from fundraisers to members to welfare officers or case workers are a part of the welfare chain. We work in partnership with other organisations to make sure we can provide the correct support where it’s needed. Our Connections for Life and caseworker volunteers attend nationally accredited training courses, and are DBS checked so that we can be completely confident in the services we provide. We carefully and sensitively deliver all the support we offer to members of the RAF community to suit the needs of each individual we help. Navigating Dementia is just one of the welfare services we offer, to find out more about our other welfare support that can be accessed, please expand the options below.
