The RAF Association has been working tirelessly behind the scenes to put in to practice a number of emergency projects to help members of the RAF family during this time of need.
The four emergency projects we have in operation are:
1. A telephone outreach service which will proactively support our members, beneficiaries and other high-risk members of our RAF community to check on their welfare and offer them regular contact (telephone or online).
2. A friendship helpline that anyone in our RAF community can call if they are feeling isolated, in need of more specific support or simply want a chat with someone friendly who understands.
3. A daily RAF-themed online entertainment slot that people can look forward to as part of their routine while they are isolating, from quizzes to live-streamed sing-a-longs and armchair fitness sessions.
4. Bag drops of vital provisions to the doorsteps of the most vulnerable members of our RAF family.
In order for us to effectively deliver these services, we will require volunteers from around the country who will be willing and able to facilitate the delivery of emergency bag drops and also make phone calls to our vulnerable members.
Please could we ask for any willing volunteer to register yourself via the firstname.lastname@example.org email address. We will then be in touch with further information about how we intend to carry out this service and also provide operational guidelines for you to follow.
Our overriding concern is to make sure no-one gets forgotten, and that those in need know about the full range of support they can access through our new emergency projects. Please email email@example.com or call 0800 018 2361 for further information on how to access any of the above mentioned projects.
