We're incredibly proud that many of our performance military athletes have gone on to represent their country again at Paralympic and Commonwealth level.

Sport plays a big role in many of our veteran's recovery journeys. Sport is powerful in helping heal both physical and mental wounds, and gives a sense of camaraderie that many miss when their military career comes to an end.

Some of our veterans go on to be elite military athletes, and we feel great pride when they compete for their country.

Taking part in sport at a higher level could be your chance to represent your country once more.

We work with partners to find the best talent in many Paralympic and non-Paralympic sports.

If you show a talent for a sport, you could be nominated by the National Governing Body (NGB) to be a part of the Help for Heroes Athlete Academy. The Academy will give you access to a tailored package of support, which might include grant funding for specialist equipment, links to world-class coaches and access to sports science and medicine support.
