Grants for Ex-military, Veterans and charitable organisations




Who can apply?


If you are living with an ongoing injury or illness from your time during service, or as a result of your service, which is having an impact on your daily life and you are currently in need of financial support, the Grants Team would be happy to explore support.  Contact details are given below.


What can I apply for?


Our Quick Reaction Fund (QRF) can help by giving swift financial support to alleviate the distress caused by injury or support you on your Road to Recovery. 

We could provide a grant for things like:


  • Housing adaptations to accommodate injury

  • Sports and therapeutic equipment and activities

  • White and brown goods

  • Vocational and employment opportunities

  • Support with priority debts


And so much more.


How will I receive the funds?


The QRF is delivered directly by us, or administered for us through the Services' own charities and aims to provide support within 72 hours in the most urgent cases.


How do I apply?


To apply for grant support, please get in touch with our friendly team using the Get Support form here or 01980 844280, or if you would like advice and signposting only, please contact 01980 844255.



At Help for Heroes, we have previously worked with more than 90 other organisations and the Services’ own charities to ensure that the wounded and their relatives get the speedy support and opportunities they so richly deserve.

In 2019, we underwent a review of our expenditure to ensure we best respond to the recovery needs of the men, women and families we are here to support. Our priority is, and always will be, ensuring that those affected by their life in the British Armed Forces are offered a fair deal.

As a result of the review, we are not currently seeking to enter into any new grant funding arrangements with third parties and are in the process of managing the remaining agreements with existing delivery partners until their natural end dates. Instead, we are prioritising grants to individuals most in need, making sure every pound goes as far as possible and that we best meet the requirements of our Veterans.

There are many different opportunities for us to work collaboratively with other organisations, where we have common goals and shared values. Increasingly such relationships will be based on the power of bringing together skills, knowledge and resource to achieve specific aims and less on financial support.

If you have any questions, please email our Head of Grants, Claire Barnes on
