RAF Benevolent Fund

About RAF Benevolent Fund

For over 100 years, we've been the RAF's most devoted friend, supporting the whole of the RAF Family, from the oldest veteran to the youngest child. We listen, understand and provide life-changing practical, emotional and financial support during people’s time of need.

We provide a wide range of services that support people and their families through the challenges of serving, adjusting to life after leaving the RAF and other life challenges - increasing wellbeing, independence and quality of life. In 2022 we were there for 16,700+ veterans and 24,000+ serving personnel and their families.

Our amazing team of volunteers help us to raise the vital funds that enable us to provide these services. They also help us to raise awareness within the RAF Family so that anyone who may need us knows that they can come to us for support. Our volunteers also support the running of our services and contribute their perspectives, based on their lived experience, to help us continually improve the services we provide.
