About Royal Air Forces AssociationThe Royal Air Forces Association (or RAF Association), is a member-led, registered welfare charity that provides welfare support to Serving and Ex-Serving RAF personnel and their families.
Much of our work is funded by the generosity of our members, donors and supporters and through vital donations from the public to the Wings Appeal. A significant proportion of our work is undertaken by those who volunteer for the charity.
Volunteers provide visits to members of the RAF family to help combat loneliness, provide information on our Wings Breaks Hotels or to help them make financial applications in times of hardship. Volunteers help us fundraise by setting up collections, attending events and raising our profile. Volunteers edit sound effects into stories for young children, read by their parents who are away on deployment and they support us in many tasks throughout our branch network across the world.
