'For the first time in a long while, I have been able to go outdoors and have fun with my family. I have been able to exercise and work up a sweat, which is something I have missed so much. My appreciation for this is beyond my ability to describe. I simply don't have the words to really articulate what this gift means to me, so I will just say thank you so much from us all. I feel like I have been released from confinement. My daughter is overjoyed that she can now cycle with her daddy."'
'The Quick Reaction Fund has made a huge difference, enabling us to meet the individual needs of wounded, injured and sick personnel quickly, with a minimum of bureaucracy and fuss. The concept that we have jointly developed has radically changed the way in which we are able to deliver well targeted and effective support without duplication of effort, maximising the available expertise and concentrating on the blokes. This is very much a joint initiative which really does illustrate the strength of the Service charities working together.'
Colonel Paul Cummings, Director, Grants and Welfare ABF The Soldiers’ Charity
'The ability to provide money at speed from our own charity and from H4H shows the charity sector working at its best. The Quick Reaction Fund that we operate on behalf of Help for Heroes has provided enormous benefit to members of the Royal Navy and Royal Marines in the Recovery Pathway'
Robert Robson, Chief Executive, The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity
'The QRF is, quite simply, brilliant. It allowed the Special Boat Service Association (SPBA) to transform the lives of two very badly wounded SF operators. One, who lost a leg and a record amount of blood, has now trained as a civilian helicopter pilot. The other, totally paralysed from the neck down, has all the equipment he needs to make life tolerable. All done humanely, quickly and efficiently, with a total lack of time-consuming bureaucracy. Thank you H4H, you are a joy to deal with, you really understand the problem and the solution.'
Major General Andrew Keeling CB CBE, President, Special Boat Service Association
