Here to help

THE Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association (SSAFA) Forces Help has a branch in Hartlepool.

We can be found at the address below on Wednesday and Thursday mornings, between 10am and noon, or can be contacted on (01429) 271298.

SSAFA provides practical help and assistance to anyone who is currently serving or has served in our armed forces, either as a regular or reservist.

Support for their families is at the heart of what we do.

Each year SSAFA provides a trusted service to thousands of people nationally in the armed forces community.

Last year alone SSAFA Forces Help directly supported 44,215 veterans and their families.

Young and old alike, we are here for them and their families from the day they join because we believe that their bravery, dedication and commitment deserve a lifetime of support.
