All partners, parents, brothers, sisters and children (over 18) of anyone serving in the RAF
All RAF veterans and their families
Those supporting the RAF community. For example: anyone working on an RAF station, MOD civil servants and defence contractors, medical staff, civilian staff or volunteers.
We welcome people who want to support their friends, family members and colleagues, and spot any signs that they may be struggling, as well as gaining some tips for managing their own mental wellbeing and resilience. Not sure which course is right for you? Contact our team on 0800 018 2361.
Your Finding it Tough? mental wellbeing course will be delivered online by one of the RAF Association’s trainers. At the start of the course, the trainer will talk through the course structure and what it involves. They will also encourage you to have your device cameras on and to join in the conversation if you feel comfortable to do so.
During the course, the trainer may refer to the course handbook, which you will receive as an electronic version in your confirmation email. This will be a fantastic reference point after the course if you need reminding of anything.
Whilst we offer our courses free of charge to the RAF community, each course costs us £593 to deliver. If for any reason you are unable to make your course, we would really appreciate you letting us know so we can offer that place to someone else. You can cancel your course by calling 0800 0182361 or through the links in your confirmation email.
If you would still like to attend a Finding it Tough? course, then you will be able to rebook at a time and date that suits you.
The course is quality marked through its AIM accreditation, and all participants can request a course certificate upon completion.
Support for the RAF community
The RAF Association believes we owe a debt of gratitude to the RAF and their families. They continue to protect the peace and safety we all enjoy every day. It’s our charity’s job to make sure everyone who is serving or has served in the RAF, and their loved ones, gets help and support when they need it most.
