We recognise that everyone’s needs are different and our top priority is providing the right support.
From 1 August 2020, the OA is unable to consider new applications for financial assistance.
We will, however, continue to provide guidance and support, as well as referrals, to specific military charities and other charitable organisations, for financial and individual support should you need it.
The OA aims to deal with all applications sensitively, promptly and in confidence. We will arrange, where necessary, home visits* by OA volunteers, known as Honorary Representatives, many of whom are former officers themselves. They work closely with our Grants and Welfare team who remain on hand to provide practical and emotional support.
*Due to Covid-19, visits are currently undertaken by telephone.
