Gurkha services

Gurkha Services provide tailored support for Gurkha veterans and their families who have settled in the UK.

I just want to help the Gurkha community effectively. We must make sure the money goes in the right places, so they get the right support from SSAFA

- Chandra, Gurkha veteran

We work collaboratively with other Gurkha specific organisations such as the Gurkha Welfare Trust, the Gurkha Brigade Association, the Army Welfare Service, Gurkha communities and others.

Our Gurkha services are available to all serving and veteran members of the Brigade of Gurkhas, and their families. We provide local SSAFA volunteers with up to date information, awareness and translation services, to ensure the Gurkha community have the same support opportunities as any other member of the Armed Forces community.

You can contact the SSAFA Gurkha team using the contact form below.

Covid-19 Vaccination

The NHS has released this Nepali-language video on What should we do after the vaccine?; please share this with any members of the Gurhka community you may know.  You can view the video on Youtube here.

SSAFA's Gurkha services are for people who have served in the Brigade of Gurkhas or are the immediate family of someone who served.

Meet Chandra

Chandra turned to SSAFA when his housing benefit was cut off. He was so impressed with his caseworker, and the help that was provided, that he immediately started volunteering himself, working hard to help integrate the Gurkha community in the UK.
