The RAF Association provides welfare services to the RAF community worldwide, helping more than 85,000 people overcome difficulties ranging from physical and wellbeing issues to financial struggles every year. With over 2,000 volunteers across the UK, the Association provides expert, life-changing help and support to serving personnel, veterans and their families whenever they are in need.
In September 2022, the Finding it Tough? campaign was launched, offering free training, through three tailored online mental wellbeing courses aimed at supporting non-serving members of the RAF community – veterans, families, and the supporting community.
Many of those working at Leonardo identify as one or more of these communities, having recently retired from the UK armed forces and/or working alongside serving personal each day.
