Any volunteers to help with SSAFA

I am a volunteer organiser with SSAFA, The Soldiers, Sailors and Airmens Families Association (the oldest Military Charity in the world) While SSAFA nationally has a wide remit of services caring for those who are still serving or who have served in any of our armed forces, in County Durham we are mainly concerned with the welfare of ex-service personnel and their dependants.
We have a pressing need for volunteer caseworkers to visit our clients and identify their needs and then work to procure the resources necessary to meet that need.
We are particularly short of volunteers in the Durham and Derwentside areas.
Given the ethos of service within the emergency services and the fact that many of your members are likely to be ex-service  personnel, I therefore request that you might include an appeal for volunteers for SSAFA, in any NARPO circulations you may have.
While everyone in SSAFA Durham is a volunteer (we have no paid staff) we do pay out of pocket expenses and we give full training for any role undertaken (usually in our central office in London).
Our Address is SSAFA, RFCA, 53 Old Elvet, Durham City DH1 3JJ Tel. 0191 383 9452  (24 hr. answerphone)
Our office is open Monday and Thursday 10 am - 12.30 pm.
Thank you so much for your consideration
Kind Regards
Terry Walton
