Apply for Swift Financial Support

Help for Heroes

Who can apply?

If you have suffered a life-changing injury or illness while serving in the British Armed Forces, have a service attributable injury, or are a family member or dependant of someone who has, we are here to offer you financial support.

What can I apply for?

Our Quick Reaction Fund (QRF) can help by giving swift financial support to alleviate the distress caused by injury or support you on your Road to Recovery. 

We could provide a grant for things like:

  • Housing adaptations
  • Sports Recovery equipment and activities
  • White and brown goods
  • Vocational and employment opportunities
  • Debt management

And so much more.

How will I receive the funds?

The QRF is delivered directly by us, or administered for us through the Services' own charities and aims to provide support within 72 hours in urgent cases.

How do I apply?

To find out more, please get in touch with our friendly team on grants@helpforheroes.org.uk or 01980 844354. 

A note on almonisation | Working together

At Help for Heroes, we are passionate about working in partnership with other organisations to avoid duplication and reduce administration. We strongly believe that by joining together, we can ensure we deliver the very best support, for life. Please know that we may approach other organisations to help meet the costs of the funding; charities call this process almonisation. Should your grant request be awarded with contributions from our partners we will ensure you are fully informed.

We are delighted to be able to work with nearly 60 other organisations and the Service’s own charities to ensure that the wounded and their relatives get the speedy support and opportunities they so richly deserve.
