How the welfare process works

Step 1

Step 1

Tell us what the problem is by filling in our welfare request form or calling 023 9265 1519 (option 1).

Step 2

Step 2

If required, we'll get in touch with SSAFA to raise a case number.

Step 3

Step 3

Where necessary a SSAFA caseworker will come and visit you to assess your needs and will complete an 'Assessment Form A'. This might sound daunting, but it won't be a frightening experience - SSAFA are there to help and they need to make sure they have a full picture of your situation to identify which charities can best help you. Without this form, we (and any other charity SSAFA reports to) cannot issue you a grant.

Step 4

Step 4

Once we receive the Assessment Form A, we will take the recommended actions.

Step 5

Step 5

We can also gauge if there are other services available to you once the SSAFA case is closed - for instance we can assign an RMA Veteran Support Officer to provide follow-up support and care plan.
