Working to help those who gave so much

At this time of year, our thoughts once again turn to Remembrance.
We think not only of those who fought so bravely in the last century, but also of our recent losses, and the continuing sacrifices made by members of our Armed Forces on a daily basis.
Sadly, the number of British servicemen and women killed and seriously injured on operations continues to rise.
Many families are now struggling to come to terms with the sudden loss of a husband, father, brother, sister, son or daughter.
Others are dealing with the impact of life-changing injuries or the physical and emotional scars a conflict can leave.
The Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association (SSAFA) Forces Help has been assisting members of the Armed Forces and their families for more than 120 years.
