SSAFA Appeal for Casework Volunteers

I work for SSAFA (Soldiers Sailors Airmen & Families Association as a Division Secretary). I have a number of caseworkers but increasingly we are seeing veterans and family members with mental health issues from PTSD to depression and anxiety. Waiting times for help are long and we need people who can communicate with them as mental help first aiders until the system starts to take over. We have veterans who are self harming and families struggling to navigate the benefit system and with medical problems that prevent them from working or potentially causing them to lose their jobs. I am looking for volunteers who can offer some short term help so they don’t feel abandoned. SSAFA will train you to become a casework volunteer and you will get a SSAFA badge and .org email address to communicate with clients. If you have the skills and are or have been with the NHS, please contact me, Daniel Millan, on 07962 832 925 or our temporary office email address:
