The Invictus Games

Sports plays a powerful role in inspiring the recovery and rehabilitation of men and women who were injured or became sick as a result of their service. The Invictus Games is a powerful demonstration of the dedication our men and women displayed when they served our country.

It is a celebration of how they confronted hardship but refused to be defined by their injury or illness. Ultimately, the Invictus UK programme empowers competitors and allows those who once served their country to proudly wear the Union Jack again.

Help for Heroes is incredibly proud to have trained, supported and delivered Team UK for the past five Invictus Games.

Unfortunately we will not be involved in future Invictus Games, instead the Royal British Legion will lead the end-to-end delivery of Team UK to the Invictus Games for the next five years and will also be the main funder of the programme.

We know The Games continues to play a unique role in shining a light on the abilities of wounded veterans.. Our focus now is on helping more people across the UK, within their communities, as part of keeping our promise to be here for wounded veterans for as long as they need us.

Since the charity launched in 2007, we have witnessed first-hand the transformative power of sport in both rehabilitation and recovery. But this power of sport extends beyond the Invictus Games. Adaptive, inclusive sport continues to be an important part of Help for Heroes’ whole person approach to recovery. Our nearly 40-strong Sport, Activity and Fellowship team will continue to deliver competitive and recreational, inclusive and adaptive sport opportunities around the UK.

Of course, we will continue to cheer Team UK on and look forward to seeing what the Invictus Games achieves in the future.
