‘The RAF Association is the charity that supports the RAF family. We support anyone who has served or currently serves in the RAF and their dependents.  In a typical year we make over 100,000 welfare calls, contacts and visits, much of which is delivered by volunteers.  From supporting the family of an injured airman, to helping with war pension claims or just being a friend to a lonely veteran, we will do what we can when someone in the RAF family needs somebody to turn to. https://www.rafa.org.uk/ ‘
