SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity exists to relieve the need, suffering and distress amongst the Armed Forces, veterans and their families in order to support their independence and dignity.

The support covers both regulars and reserves in the Royal Navy, the Royal Marines, the British Army and the Royal Air Force and their families, including anyone who has completed National Service. They are entitled to lifelong support from SSAFA, no matter how they have served.

There are SSAFA branches in most counties and cities in the UK. There are also a number of overseas branches. SSAFA France was set up locally in Castillonnes, Lot-et-Garonne in 2004. The branch is now active throughout France with the aim of supporting members of the Armed Forces community and their families in times of need.

At SSAFA France, the team are dedicated to helping service personnel, veterans and their families, in their local communities. Their network of more than 40 experienced, non-judgemental and friendly caseworkers are on hand to provide a variety of services that cover a range of emotional, practical and financial issues.

The country is split into three divisions: North down to the Loire, Centre down to the Dordogne and South to the Mediterranean. SSAFA understands the unique demands of service life and are committed to providing support to those in need throughout France.

SSAFA France provide a range of support services to assist with a variety of issues, including addiction, relationship breakdown, debt, homelessness, depression and disability. Many of these problems only become apparent when an individual must leave their life in the Forces and join ‘Civvy Street’. SSAFA is committed to helping our brave men and women overcome these issues, whenever and wherever they need us.
