Life in the Armed Forces is challenging enough without the added stress of having to cope unsupported with the demands of additional needs or disabilities. SSAFA provides backing, encouragement and a ready source of advice for parents of children with additional needs or disabilities, serving personnel with a disability and their partners and carers.
We organise children’s holidays which concentrate on offering experiences and activities often unavailable to them. We rely on our team of holiday volunteers to assist. Our holidays offer disabled children and/or children with additional needs, their siblings and other young carers the chance to experience activities normally denied to them. The holidays are also an opportunity for the whole family to recharge their batteries.
