The Royal Air Forces Association (RAFA) is a membership organisation of serving and former members of the Royal Air Force, their families and dependants and all those supporting the aims of the Association.
The Association provides help and advice, assistance, comradeship and, where required, welfare and care for the whole RAF family.
The Diss and District branch is based in Diss in the Waveney valley and serves an area that includes large parts of South Norfolk and North Suffolk.
The branch normally meets on the fourth Monday of each month at the Diss & District Bowls Club, Denmark Street, Diss, IP22 4BE starting at 7.30pm. But please check calendar / events before coming to see us. Visitors are welcome.
The Branch is a registered charity in it's own right. Charity number 1078704.
RAFA also arranges social events, outings to places of interest, participates in quizzes and generally takes the theme of "comradeship" seriously.
However, the main purpose of RAFA is to assist serving and former members of the RAF and their families who need help. So we work to raise money throughout the year and especially during Wings Appeal in September.
Our Welfare Advisors are there for anyone needing help. This may vary from a friendly chat to some item that's needed, such as a wheelchair, or the provision of transport. RAFA takes pride in responding quickly to requests for help.
