Welfare

Branch Welfare Officer

We have a trained Welfare Officer who can offer advice and help to our members. Provided the relevant conditions are satisfied and all the forms are properly completed, the Welfare Officer can apply for financial assistance from the RAF Association or the RAF Benevolent Fund. In our welfare work, we also work closely with the Soldiers’, Sailors’ and Airmens’ Families Association (SSAFA) and the Royal British Legion.

If you need help, please contact us on 087 1817075 or email us at info@rafaroi.org. Our Welfare Officer will then get in touch with you.
