The Royal Air Forces Association (RAF Association), is the largest single Service membership organisation and the longest standing registered service charity that provides welfare support to the RAF Family – providing friendship, help and support to current and former members of the Royal Air Force and their dependants.
Receiving no government contributions, our work is completely funded by the generosity of our members and through vital donations from our supporters to the Wings Appeal.
The Association exists in the recognition that RAF personnel and their immediate families dedicate their lives to their country, and to ensure that such a sacrifice does not result in suffering, poverty or loneliness.
Whether it’s an injured airman fighting to get back on his feet, a young child missing their parent away on overseas operations, or a World War II veteran needing a shoulder to lean on, we are here to help all generations of RAF Service personnel and their families.
The RAF Association has around 63,500 members and several hundred branches located around the world. The RAF Armourers Branch is one of these and is extremely proactive in promoting the ethos of the Association.
