SSAFA Kent is the local branch of a national charity which offers lifelong support to our Forces and their families. Founded in 1885 the charity has been supporting service families ever since. The help offered today is different in practical terms from 129 years ago, but is still the one to one support offering help in whatever circumstances our clients find themselves. It may be debt (in Kent we pay for professional debt advice which is free to clients), it may be homelessness (we work with other charities to fund deposit and first month’s rent), it may be the need for furniture or furnishings, help with Disabled Facilities Grants (stairlifts and bathroom conversions), it may be help for prisoners’ families – whatever the need our volunteers do all they can to help on an individual one to one basis.
