WHO CAN JOIN THE BAND OF BROTHERS NETWORK?
The Help for Heroes Band of Brothers is a network open to Veterans, Service Personnel and those who have served alongside our Armed Forces who have been wounded, injured or sick during, or as a result of, their Service and resulting in an ongoing need for support.
If you would like to sign up to the Band of Brothers, we would love to hear from you. Please, could you send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org letting us know you would like to become a member and whether you are currently serving or a Veteran, and one of the team will be in touch with you as soon as possible.
WHAT WE OFFER
The Help for Heroes Band of Brothers membership offers the opportunity to become part of a group that provides mutual support and a sense of belonging alongside others with shared experiences. Any sense of social isolation is reduced by accessing events and opportunities organised and run by our network of passionate Regional Coordinators who cover every part of the UK providing a listening ear, advice and some laughs in a safe, non-judgemental environment.
It offers a gateway into the wider Recovery provision, and alongside that support, there is the opportunity to make new friends as an individual or with your family.
Membership is free, confidential and comes with some amazing benefits and opportunities such as:
Mutual support and advice from others in a similar situation to yourself
A wide range of regular regional events and activities for you and the family: meals, visits, seasonal events, breakfast meetups, coffee mornings, with many of these taking place in the evenings or weekend
Complimentary tickets to sporting and musical events, family breaks and once in a lifetime opportunities, such as marching at The Cenotaph, attending a Buckingham Palace Garden Party or flying a British Airways simulator
Discounts with use of your Band of Brothers membership card
Access to further support from other Help for heroes services, including welfare, career support, psychological wellbeing, and clinical advisors
…and much more
All applicants will be required to provide evidence of service and details of injury and/or illness as part of the application process.
TESTIMONIALS FROM BAND OF BROTHERS MEMBERS
“ I have made friends for life, from day one I felt accepted and valued. I leave events full of encouragement”
“Thank you all very much for your time, support, fun and encouragement towards the massive changes in my life for the better during the short time I have been a Veteran member, with you, Help for Hero’s and Band of Brothers. You have helped to make me feel so much happier than I have been for many years. You are Hero’s to me and I appreciate you all”.
“ Due to this event I have met for a gentleman who has like me been struggling with severe PTSD and we’ve arranged a get together after Christmas to play a few holes of golf. Just wanted to let you know an example of some of the great things that come from the event”.
“ Thank you so much for today, it really cheered me up just to have a coffee and a good chat, things like this mean more than you can know. I am really happy and excited to be a part of Band of Brothers and hope to attend many more meet ups and get to know new people”
