Since our foundation in 1919, the RAF Benevolent Fund has been there, through thick and thin, supporting the RAF family. We are an independent charity and receive no regular Government funding.
Our principal activities are the following:
We provide a spectrum of services that range from our Airplay programme supporting children growing up on RAF stations, to relationship counselling for RAF couples and respite breaks for RAF families and veterans.
We also support members of the Air Cadet Organisation (ACO) (including members of the Combined Cadet Force RAF component) if they are injured whilst on duty.
