Where to go for support
There are in excess of 1,800 military charities in the UK who support the Armed Forces community. Being aware of which one to go to – as well as what each of them can offer can leave you feeling a little perplexed as to where to start.
The RAF has its own ‘RAF Family’ of charities as well as many others offering general support.
Cobseo, as the Confederation of Service Charities, provides a single point of contact for interaction with Government, including local government and the Devolved Administrations; with the Royal Household; the Private Sector; and of course, with other members of the Armed Forces community. This allows Cobseo Members to interact with all interested parties and especially to cooperate and collaborate with others in order to provide the best possible level of support to beneficiaries.
