Help for Heroes strives to achieve the best for the men and women of Great Britain’s Armed Forces, both serving and veteran. We are proud to work with other Service charities to make sure that the wounded, injured and sick get the support they deserve. Here is how Help for Heroes' grants have improved support for the families of those who become affected as a direct result of their service.
Help for Heroes granted £2m to support recovering personnel and their families at Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham (QEHB). The grant has been used to fund the construction and help meet the running costs of a Forces and Families Centre on site at QEHB to be named 'Fisher House'.
The project will be delivered through a partnership between Help for Heroes, the Fisher House Foundation and the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birminham Charity.
Help for Heroes provided a grant of £1.5m to support construction costs of the house, in addition to £500k for running costs, which equates to £50k a year for 10 years.
