People are at the heart of what we do. Together we:

  • We fund youth services on stations to provide clubs and activities for the children of serving personnel who move every few years. 
  • We provide grants to help with the cost of living. But this is just a few of the ways we help.

Working at the Fund means you can play your part in changing the lives of people who serve or have served in the RAF and supporting them through some of life’s challenges. 

It doesn’t matter how long someone served or when. If they were part of the RAF, they and their family are part of our RAF Family. We will always be here to support them when they need it most.
