GSK is a science-led global healthcare company with a mission: to help people to do more, feel better, live longer. 

Our partnership fell within its Health and Wellbeing in Communities programme, which aims to make a difference to communities through economic contribution, investment, education programmes and partnerships

GSK kindly supported our cause with a generous grant of £1 million over five years between 2011 and 2015 to support our previous recovery model. 

In 2013, GSK funded a work placement for a member of our Band of Brothers fellowship group, which led to a permanent role within the company. Following the success of this scheme, GSK provided a further £10,000 funding to offer further opportunities to support veterans back into work.

GSK continued to support us in various ways, not simply as a corporate donor, but also as a pro bono supporter providing know-how and expertise in 2016.

We participated in an event for the Apprenticeship group organised by the GSK Early Talent Team, the ‘Apprenticeship Challenge’. The Help for Heroes team set apprentices from GSK’s GMS a challenge to design a solution to a problem that many of those we support face. Paul, one of our ambassadors, shared his experience of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) with the team, who explored the use of high peak noise cancelling ear buds.
