Giving the armed forces a lift
If you’re a serving member of the armed forces, a veteran, or a relative of someone who is, you could be eligible for help with the cost of your stairlift.
The SSAFA doesn’t only help serving members of the armed forces. Families and veterans also benefit from an organisation that offers everything from transition support to dealing with PTSD, housing and debt advice to mentoring.
Another way the SSAFA helps its members is with mobility. It’s helped many veterans and injured service personnel fund stairlifts over the years. It’s also helped fund stairlifts and similar equipment for disabled children of servicemen and women.
We’ve mentioned in these pages previously how, all too often, stairlifts are overlooked as simply a benefit for the elderly. In reality of course, anyone of any age can have mobility issues. Which means anyone of any age can have a stairlift – and that’s especially true in the case of members of the armed forces, who may need a stairlift (at least temporarily) while they recover from injuries.
So we’re delighted that, as part of its support for our servicemen and women, the SSAFA is championing the role of stairlifts in aiding mobility.
