Bryony continues to fundraise for the Royal Air Forces Association, and has even completed a sponsored skydive!
Inspired by her own life-changing experience, Bryony is now leading a campaign calling for more former officers and their families to contact the OA should they need financial help and support to overcome some of life’s challenges after leaving the Services. She has released a video in conjunction with the OA, detailing her road to regaining her independence with the OA’s assistance.
The video can be viewed here.
The OA take a holistic approach in helping and supporting former officers of the Armed Forces and their dependants, and acts as a first port of call to provide support on aspects of welfare, statutory benefits, loneliness and legal advice.
The OA’s Benevolence team works to:
- Provide friendly and confidential support
- Help with a wide range of living expenses through annual allowances
- Assist with unexpected general living costs that can occur
- Signpost to other, relevant charities if the OA can’t help
The OA also works with both serving and former officers and reservists to enable them to achieve a sustainable transition into civilian employment.
Bryony Fuller said:
“The OA helped me to rebuild my life, they helped me in so many ways. The main thing to me is that I can stay in my own home. It’s not just what they’ve done for me, it’s the fact they’re still there after all this time.”
