Join the search. Change a life.

The RAF Benevolent Fund wants to get RAF veterans and their families back on the radar. We estimate that as many as 300,000 members of the RAF Family could be out there and in need of life-changing support.

We all have a last chance to do our duty, just as they did theirs, by giving them and their families the support they deserve.

Please get in touch with us if you know someone who is in need of help or to request help for yourself. Alternatively, you can call our helpline number on 0300 102 1919.

Watch our TV advert


Our TV advert, voiced by Sir David Jason, brings home our vital campaign message, urging everyone to help us find RAF veterans and their families who have fallen off the radar. Their needs could be urgent, so there's no time to lose.

Jack's story

With your help, we're getting more RAF veterans back on the radar. People like Jack Watson, 96, who flew in the elite Pathfinder Force and completed 77 operations flying with Bomber Command. Jack was referred to us by a friend who had heard our Controller's appeal for veterans in need to get in touch. We stepped in to make improvements to his kitchen which meant he could continue living independently.
