SSAFA – The Armed Forces Charity

Cobseo, The Confederation of Service Charities, is a membership organisation of 300 full and associate member charities and organisations with a reach to a further 700 or so affiliate members supporting the Armed Forces Community, which includes serving personnel, veterans, their families and dependants. Cobseo exists to encourage and facilitate greater co-operation and collaboration across the sector and to engage and influence decision makers for the benefit of the welfare of the Armed Forces Community such that the lives of beneficiaries are positively enhanced by the effectiveness, efficiency, and delivery of support of military charities. Cobseo members work within a ‘Cluster’ structure where they fulfil the key role of the Confederation of encouraging and facilitating cooperation and collaboration to provide enhanced support for beneficiaries. The Cluster approach highlights the Confederation’s collaborative ethos and brings together charities working in similar fields, for example employment, housing, and mental health and wellbeing.
