Welcome to the RAF Benevolent Fund
The Royal Air Force has a proud tradition of looking after its own. The RAF Benevolent Fund is the RAF’s leading welfare charity and is an extension of that tradition.
“The RAF Benevolent Fund is part of the conscience of the British nation.” Winston Churchill.
Since our foundation in 1919, we have been there, through thick and thin, supporting the RAF family. We are there for all serving and former members of the RAF as well as their partners and dependent children.
We have three main goals, or charitable objects:
- The first is to maintain and preserve the RAF Memorial in London on behalf of the nation.
- The second is to provide assistance to the RAF family, when they are in need.
- The third is to support the morale and wellbeing of the serving RAF.
We also provide a spectrum of care, supporting everyone from children growing up on RAF stations, to those serving today to keep our skies safe, to the veterans who fought for our freedom.
The RAF Benevolent Fund spends over £22 million each year supporting over 68,000 people, and we rely on you to make it all happen.
The recycling scheme is completely free of charge and 100% of the value of all inkjet cartridges successfully recycled will be donated to this charity. There are certain cartridges which are eligible for the charity scheme, so please ensure that you check to see if yours is listed.
If your inkjet cartridge is listed and you would like to send it into us, please click on the freepost downloadable label below and affix to your own packaging. Please note that the freepost weight limit is 1kg; if you have multiple items and think that you may exceed this weight limit, you may have to split them into smaller packages.
