Leave a legacy gift to Heroes of every generation

Help for Heroes

How will my legacy help?

Almost a third of our work is funded by the legacy gifts kindly left to us by wonderful friends like you. Without legacies we simply would not be able to help as many people as we do, or promise them lifelong support.

Our beneficiaries often have complex needs so the specialist staff in our recovery centres and outreach teams provide a wide range of services. Through your gift you could help supply careers guidance and mentoring to help former military personnel find a new vocation and provide for their family, or you could help our psychological wellbeing team offer counselling to those suffering from PTSD and other mental health issues.

You could fund specialist equipment to help injured Veterans live independently or support families as they adapt to life with their loved one’s injury. Your legacy could enable someone to try adaptive sports for the first time, help our Welfare team offer free and confidential guidance or support our fellowship networks as they help individuals and families to rebuild their lives.

Recovery is more than repairing damaged bodies and minds; it’s about restoring confidence and renewing hope. It takes time, understanding, expert staff, specialist equipment and a willingness to walk alongside each individual for as long as their recovery journey takes. It also takes the help and encouragement of caring, committed and loyal friends like you.

How can I leave a gift?

When you next come to make or update your Will and have provided for your family and friends, please take a moment to imagine the difference you could make by leaving a gift to our Heroes. Every gift, large or small, can change the life of a Serviceman or woman who has served our country with pride but paid a high price.

Please download our legacy factsheet for more information about the different types of gift you can leave, our registered details and suggested wording your solicitor might like to use. If you have any questions at all about Will-writing, legacies or any aspect of our work, our legacy team are always happy to help so please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
