provides support for the serving men and women in today’s Armed Forces
and for those who have served - even if it was only for a single day. We
also care for the needs of their families and dependants. I am a trained
SSAFA Welfare Caseworker
If any of our AFSC members have problems my job would be to contact that area caseworker where they live and together we would attempt immediately to address the problems and get help.
My work is not all about finance. It's about help for the wife of /
husband of the serving or ex serving serviceman or woman.
It's about getting short term accommodation in cases of need.
It's about looking at respite care or short holidays.
It's about looking at mental, sociological and physiological problems and trying to address them.
IT'S ABOUT LOTS OF THINGS!!!!
I am 'on call' 24/7 so any
AFSC can call me at ANY TIME!!! I'm awake
anyway with my 'kin leg!!!!
