Employment and Housing
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 re-employment and housing support available to our wounded Servicemen, women and veterans.
Wings for Warriors
Wings for Warriors aims to re-train injured Service personnel as commercial pilots. The training allows graduates the potential for an exciting and challenging future, which will draw upon the personal characteristics developed in their military careers.
Help for Heroes has been able to grant Wings for Warriors £45,000 towards the programme which will fund many more injured Service personnel on the course.
Wings for Warriors believes that exceptional people deserve exceptional opportunities. The training requires students to challenge themselves holistically and places emphasis on physical, psychological and social development. Over time students will re-build their own confidence, capability and pride at the same time as working towards a recognised civilian qualification.
