Children and young people
At the Fund, we support children growing up on RAF stations through our dedicated youth support programme.
We have Airplay for children aged eight to eighteen which includes our digital Airplay Connect service, our Ben Clubs which provide fun activities for children aged five to seven and our childcare centres which cater for babies and toddlers within a nurturing environment. We provide state of the art facilities that include our play parks as well as range social activities.
Children and young people aged between five and 18 can also access counselling through our specialist counselling service. Our trained counsellors can help young people to manage issues such as anxiety, depression, relationship problems and family breakdown.
From January 2022 Airplay will be delivered for the RAF Benevolent Fund by One YMCA and more information will be available soon.
