Giving Back

At NAAFI, our mission is to improve the lived experience of our Forces communities

Welfare Contribution

As a not-for-profit organisation, we have an agreed mechanism with the Ministry of Defence to return all our trading surpluses back into supporting our Armed Forces either as direct financial contributions to the locations that generated it, or by investment in the facilities we operate.

The NAAFI Fund

Launched in 2020, the NAAFI Fund is committed to providing a minimum of £10m back to Armed Forces Units to invest in their own welfare projects over the course of a decade. Armed Forces Units can apply for NAAFI Funding to support projects that improve the quality of life for Forces communities.

To date, grants worth over three and a half million have been awarded by NAAFI Fund.
