Lance Bombardier Dan Richards
“I never expected anything like this, simply mind blowing. There was nothing you could have done to make my stay any better.”
“What H4H, and all those other charities who have been engaged in the Tedworth House project, have achieved is quite staggering. The facilities, the atmosphere and ethos are all spot on; people are putting in real thought, imagination, inspiration, determination and no little perspiration. It is incredibly impressive – and we are most fortunate.”
Major General John Lorimer DSO MBE
“Tedworth House is ground breaking in its scope, design, and the support it offers on the long road through life post injury.”

"When I visited Tedworth House it took a big weight off my shoulders. All my worries about leaving the army just disappeared. I have seen there are no catches, the choice is mine and I know their support is there for life, whether I need it now or in the future.”
Private Scott Meenagh
“Thank you very much for my stay and I’m looking forward to staying again. People like you make the world a better place.”

“Thank you very much for a wonderful stay, it was much appreciated. The staff were very friendly and couldn’t do enough to please.”
Guardsman Jordan Wignall
“I would like to thank all the staff for their continued support in what has been the hardest year of my life… Thank you!”
Sergeant Rob Bryan
“Staying at Phoenix House has been a very positive experience. It has been good to interact and share, especially when the military is all I have known. I have been able to build my confidence through courses and by getting involved in the support programme. Being at the Recovery Centre gives you the chance to communicate and get some guidance in a positive way. It is good to have face to face contact, it has a personal feel.” “Catterick and Tedworth have kept me active and productive. They play a hugely important role in the care of veterans and troops and my stays have been really positive experiences. Help for Heroes has absolutely changed the public’s perception of the wounded. They have personally offered me a great deal of help during the recovery process and the Recovery Centres are fantastic.”
Lance Corporal Troy Connor
“Since I have been in the Centre I have achieved more and made more progress than I have done in the previous 14 months. I have fully enjoyed my time; instead of dwelling on the past I’m now excited about the future.”
Corporal Duncan Green
"I would just like to express my sincere gratitude to all of the staff at Chavasse VC House in Colchester. I have just finished my IRP course and have found it to be extremely helpful and informative. It is just what is required to assist us."
T Stimpson MBE
"Well, where to start? I would think the first thing to say would be a massive THANK YOU! On entering the building I was welcomed with a smile, respect and dignity; this continued throughout my whole stay."
