Help for Heroes is committed to providing direct, practical support to individuals as well as building long-term support for their futures.
Help for Heroes has built a nationwide recovery network from scratch. This includes not only a grant giving capability but also four Help for Heroes Recovery Centres, which have been purpose-built with charity funds and which support around 4,000 individuals every year.
As at 30 September 2015, Help for Heroes has provided over 8,866 financial grants to individuals to the value of £10.6m.
The Charity has funded, or worked with, over 60 specialist charities and organisations to date, spending over £31m delivering support to Veterans, Serving personnel and families.
Help for Heroes funded the £8.5m rehabilitation complex at Headley Court. In the last financial year (1 October 2014 to 30 September 2015) we provided funding for projects for other charities including Combat Stress (£6.5m), Fisher House (£2m), Blind Veterans UK (£1m), and SSAFA (£520k).Other charities Help for Heroes work with include Blind Veterans UK, Winston’s Wish, Canine Partners and the Royal British Legion.
Help for Heroes has also funded thousands of individuals through the dedicated Army, RAF and Naval Service charities: The Royal Airforce Benevolent Fund, ABF The Soldiers’ Charity, The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity and the Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund.
In addition, Help for Heroes has established the Band of Brothers and Band of Sisters fellowships for the wounded and their closest loved ones. This brings together (as at Sept 2015) 6,000 members who rely on the Charity and each other to champion their needs and given them a voice.
