The RFAA Welfare fund is set up to help all members of the RFA Association, all serving or former serving members of the RFA and the dependants of any such members who are in need, hardship or distress.
We can do this by:
a) Making grants of money to them,
b) Providing or paying for goods, services or facilities for them,
c) Making grants of money to other persons or bodies who provide goods, services or facilities to those in need,
d) Providing advice and counselling to them during bereavement or injury or during times of crisis or conflict.
Our Welfare Officers are always ready to help and will listen to any requests for assistance whether from the person concerned or from colleagues or family members.
