If you lose someone who has previously served in our Armed Forces, or you are ex-Forces* and you lose someone, then SSAFA is committed to supporting you during your bereavement. 

Everyone needs different support when they are grieving. If you need emotional support, our volunteers can be there to listen as you come to terms with your loss. If you are struggling with finances or your personal circumstances change following your loss, they can look for ways to assist you with practical challenges and may be able to get you help with the financial costs associated with your situation, such as moving house.

*SSAFA's services are available to people who have received at least one day's pay from the Armed Forces (British Army, Royal Navy, Royal Air Force, Royal Marines, including Reserves), or are in the immediate family of someone who served.


You can speak in confidence to a Forcesline Advisor Monday - Friday 9am - 17.30pm. Call 0800 731 4880
