As individuals we had a history with SSAFA in the UK before we moved to Cyprus – it’s such a worthwhile organisation – as Sunshine Carers Cyprus want to continue helping SSAFA where we can.
Mark, from Sunshine Carers, was a County Co-ordinator for SSAFA in the UK and worked with them for five years as a volunteer. He used to supervise and organise the case workers who visit clients homes to assess eligibility and assist with grants and funding. The skills he learned during this time really help him with assessing current client needs for Sunshine Carers.
Here’s an introduction to their services.
Are you eligible for support from SSAFA Forces Help?
SSAFA services reflect the financial, practical and emotional issues people face today and they are freely available to virtually everybody with a Service connection. Some are more appropriate for those currently serving, some for those who have served and there are those which apply to everybody. But whatever your status, you can be certain that they will treat your enquiry as confidential and ensure that you are always treated with dignity and respect.
If you think you are eligible, then please see their contact us details now.
You can confirm that you are eligible for their assistance by going to their How we can help you, but even if you don’t qualify, you can still contact them via contact us. SSAFA is always happy to give you advice and guidance on who else you could approach.
SSAFA provide experienced, non-judgmental and friendly advice, as well as a variety of practical services which cover a range of social, family and financial issues. All their dealings are confidential and anybody who approaches them for help is treated with dignity and respect. Contact us or download more information.
From the provision of Health and Social services, to supporting the ex-Service community; from running a Forcesline, to delivering holidays for children with additional needs. SSAFA cover a very broad spectrum of issues as you will see on What we do or download their general factsheet. They try to bring solutions to the widest audience possible – anybody whose life has been touched by time in the Armed Forces.
