information SERVICE DETAILS

The SSAFA VCJS Support Service is committed to giving veterans and their families a service that delivers. Our aim is to ensure that we offer a recognised and consistent service nationwide whilst meeting our five strategic objectives: effective support, awareness and understanding, sustainable resource, and collaborative working.

It is vital that the service we provide within the Criminal Justice System has a proactive approach and supports all of the Armed Forces community, no matter what the circumstances. Armed Forces community includes all serving and ex-serving personnel from the Army, Royal Navy, Royal Marines, Royal Air Force whether regular or reservists, national service and families.

What we do...

Our network of in-reach volunteers provides advice and information - not only to those in custody, on probation or in the community, but also to their families. The support offered is non-judgemental and holistic and includes:

- Practical and emotional support
- Signposting to services
- Financial support
- Family support
- Travel assistance
- Accommodation
