ssafa caseworkers needed!

FAO: Armed Forces Champion 6 January 2022
Dear Sir/Madam
SSAFA Lancashire Support – Caseworkers needed!
You may be aware that SSAFA – the Armed Forces charity is the UKs oldest tri-service military charity. In 2019 we supported over 79,000 individuals through welfare services, all of which is delivered by our wonderful volunteers.
SSAFA Lancashire branch are a diligent team of volunteers focusing on the welfare of serving and ex-serving members of the armed forces and their families who reside in our County. We find ourselves with a very busy caseload and are particularly in need of recruiting Caseworkers to help support the community across Lancashire.
Caseworkers are the lifeblood of SSAFA. The role they play in supporting our beneficiaries is extraordinarily important and the skills they bring and then develop further whilst with us are invaluable.
As your organization is a signatory of the Armed Forces Covenant we very much hope you will assist us in our search for new Caseworkers as part of your ongoing commitment to the armed forces community in Lancashire.
There may be individuals within your organisation who are keen to develop their listening and relationship-building skills and would enjoy utilizing their report writing and investigative skills to help us – the Lancashire branch are a very dedicated and friendly team of committed volunteers so would warmly welcome anyone wishing to join them.
Our volunteer roles can be performed alongside full time work and you don’t need to have a military background. Most importantly, volunteering provides personal development opportunities and a huge sense of achievement to your workforce. We deliver very comprehensive training and support to help new volunteers get up to speed, develop their skills and ensure their volunteering is enjoyable.
