SSAFA provides financial, practical and emotional support for serving personnel, veterans and military families across the UK and beyond.

The Covid-19 pandemic has had a major impact on the armed forces community, the charity says, with many more seeking help than ever before.

The local SSAFA branch is in need of a range of volunteer roles, including branch secretary and branch treasurer.

Branch secretaries manage branches and provide support to all volunteers, oversee casework and ensure clients are getting the best possible support.

Branch treasurers, meanwhile, look after branch finances, with the role encompassing book-keeping and financial administration.

A spokesperson for the charity said: “Our network of trained volunteers are at the heart of our work. Our volunteers are more important now than ever as we face even more challenges, both physically and financially, and continue to support those who need our help.”

Previous experience is not necessary as training will be provided. All backgrounds and experiences are welcomed, and a military background is not essential.

Anyone interested in volunteering can contact their local branch on 0115 957 3289 or visit
