SSAFA Got Your Back Campaign


SSAFA has joined forces with celebrities to launch "Got Your Back" Campaign, encouraging vulnerable members of the UK Military Community to ask for help.


New research published by SSAFA, The Armed Forces charity, has revealed that less than 1% of the personnel currently serving in the United Kingdom’s Armed Forces or veterans would seek help from a charity if they found themselves in need.

Currently serving members of the Armed Forces, veterans and their families in need can contact SSAFA’s Forcesline on 0800 731 4880 or via email at www.ssafa.org.uk/gotyourback. Forcesline is a free and confidential helpline and email service that provides support and advice and operates independently from the military chain of command.

Save 1/3 on Rail Travel


The HM Forces Railcard costs £15 and it'll save you 1/3 on most rail fares throughout Great Britain for a whole year. That works out to under £2 a month for huge savings. You're eligible if you're a member of the Regular Forces or a spouse of a member, for more details see eligibility.

There are plenty of ways you can use your Railcard, for both long and short trips. Better still you can use it anytime on weekends, Public Holidays and during the week. The only restriction is that if you travel before 10am Monday to Friday (except during July and August) a minimum fare will apply. For more details see minimum fares.

Your HM Forces Railcard will save you 1/3 on many tickets. As with most things in life, there are some exceptions, so take a look at the ticket types you can and can't make savings on with your HM Forces Railcard.
