Volunteering (opportunities available to BFB entitled personnel only)
Within BFB community, there are a number of voluntary opportunities (available to BFB entitled personnel only) which could enhance your CV such as;
SSAFA In-Service Committee (available to BFB entitled personnel only)
The SSAFA In-Service Committee Brunei provides funding and support to all serving Garrison members, their dependants, other associated Garrison organisations and Garrison-related community projects.
It is made up of volunteers from across the Garrison community and meets once a month to vote on funding applications and to generate new fundraising ideas. Key roles are: chairperson, secretary, treasurer, publicity officer and merchandising officer.
We also host events, such as the SSAFA Big Brew and Camo Day, as well as supporting other activities throughout the Garrison. The Loan Service at Berakas has a SSAFA representative and it contributes towards SSAFA Brunei funds.
If you haven’t time to sign up to the committee, but are willing to help out at events, we also have the Friends of SSAFA Brunei group.
As SSAFA is a recognised UK-registered military charity, volunteering can enhance your CV.
For more information, contact the SSAFA In-Service Committee secretary: or visit our Facebook page.
