The Royal Air Force 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.

Ride25 organised for a group of 75 to cycle from Paris to London on Brompton Bikes to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of The Battle of Britain.  Watch the video below:|


“The RAF Benevolent Fund is part of the conscience of the British nation”

Winston Churchill

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

WHY The RAF Benevolent Fund EXISTs

The RAF Benevolent Fund is there for any member of the RAF family who is in need of financial, practical or emotional support – from the youngest child to the oldest veteran.

In 2013 the charity spent over £18 million supporting more than 60,000 members of the RAF family with a wide range of issues from childcare, relationship difficulties and debt, to injury, disability and bereavement.

This could be helping an injured serviceman or woman who may need adaptations to their home or an elderly veteran who needs a stairlift in order to remain independent at home.

The RAFBF is also custodian of the RAF Memorial and the Bomber Command Memorial in London, which honour the men and women who sacrificed so much in the Great War and in the Second World War.
