RAF Benevolent Fund

The Royal Air Force has a proud tradition of looking after its own. The RAF Benevolent Fund is the RAF’s leading welfare charity and is an extension of that tradition.

Since our foundation in 1919, we have been there, through thick and thin, supporting the RAF family. We are there for all serving and former members of the RAF as well as their partners and dependent children.




We have three main goals, or charitable objects. These are the reasons that we exist as a charity.

1.        The first is to maintain and preserve the RAF Memorial in London on behalf of the nation.

2.        The second is to provide assistance to the RAF family, when they are in need.

3.        The third is to support the morale and wellbeing of the serving RAF.

We are also responsible for the new Bomber Command Memorial in central London.




We provide a spectrum of care, supporting everyone from children growing up on RAF stations, to those serving today to keep our skies safe, to the veterans who fought for our freedom.


It could be supplying an electric wheelchair for a Polish pilot who fought in the Second World War, supporting the widow and children of an RAF sergeant killed in action, or providing practical help to a young airman injured in Afghanistan.


We also run a range of innovative projects and services including:

We spend £20million each year supporting over 60,000 people, and we rely on you to make it all happen.




We are an independent charity and we receive no government funding. We rely entirely on your support to continue our work. We work hard to keep our overheads low – 88 pence in every pound donated goes directly to support the RAF family.




You can support us in many different ways, and it – find us on Facebook and Twitter
