Annual review summary

As the RAF's oldest friend, 2018 was certainly an exciting year which saw significant success in the areas of fundraising and the delivery of welfare. We expanded many of our welfare activities, ensuring RAF veterans and our current RAF servicemen and women are at the heart of everything we do.

This year's Review reflects the very broad range of support that the Fund provides. In 2018 we reached out and supported more than 53,000 members of the RAF Family, spending £20.9M in doing so, including £5.8M on the currently serving.
