RAFA Welfare Facilities

RAFA St Mawgan forms part of the UK-wide network of branches that support the Royal Air Forces Association (RAFA) welfare initiatives. RAFA’s overall object is to promote, through the comradeship engendered by its members, the welfare by charitable means of all serving and former members of Her Majesty’s Air Forces, their spouses and dependents, together with the widows and widowers and dependents of those who died whilst serving or subsequently.

Homes from Home for the RAF family

Situated across the country in some of England’s most picturesque locations, the RAF Association and RAF Benevolent Fund’s respite care homes offer a true home from home and a warm welcome for those who are looking for a relaxing break away.

Whether it’s an idyllic break by the sea or the chance to stay in the stunning Northumbrian countryside, each of our homes has something special to offer.

Our Homes from Home offer respite short stays and breaks. The fully trained and friendly staff are able to provide specialised care and support for those who need that little extra assistance, with facilities available to cater for a wide variety of needs.

Our homes provide a warm and friendly environment with plenty of opportunities to meet like-minded people. Many of our guests return time and again to enjoy a break within the comfort of the RAF family.

We have three homes that offer short welfare breaks; Flowerdown House in Weston-super-Mare, Richard Peck House in Lytham St Annes and Rothbury House in Northumberland.
