Turn2us Grants Spotlight

This month, our Grants Spotlight focuses on SSAFA, the oldest Armed Forces charity.

SSAFA, founded in 1885, gives practical and emotional support to service and ex-service men and women as well as their immediate dependants who are in need.

This year commemorates the 100-year anniversary of the most significant moments in British history – the end of World War One. SSAFA played an important role in the conflict by supporting families of soldiers going to the front. After five months, the charity had paid out more than £1m from the National Relief Fund that it administered and recruited 50,000 voluntary workers.

To mark the centenary, SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity, and its celebrity ambassadors have come together to call on the public to help keep the nation’s history alive by sharing their family stories and photos from The Great War.
