YOUR GIFT OF LIFELONG SUPPORT

Too many veterans are still fighting their battles decades after laying down their weapon. By leaving a gift in your Will you can show our Armed Forces Community that, whatever the future holds, they won’t have to fight alone.

LEGACIES MAKE OUR LIFE-CHANGING SERVICES POSSIBLE

Gifts in Wills are our largest source of funds, providing practical help and hope to veterans and families across the UK. Here are a few examples of the essential services legacies are supporting right now.


• Treatment from experienced nurses and therapists.

• Counselling and mental health support.

• Specialist equipment and home adaptations to help veterans live more independently.

• Support with housing, finances, education and family matters.

• Community-based sport, exercise and social activities for veterans and families.

• Educational courses and support to help veterans and families manage their recovery and adapt to civilian life.

Legacies come in all shapes and sizes but every single gift has the power to change lives.

If you live in Scotland, the information is slightly different.  For our free guid for Scotland please email our team at legacies@helpforheroes.org.uk.

YOU CAN HELP OUR HEROES REBUILD THEIR LIVES

Tony Williams had only just turned 26 when he was shot and almost died of his injuries in Afghanistan.

Told he’d never walk again or have children, Tony has fought every day to rebuild his life. Now he has a beautiful family, a state-of-the-art leg brace and big plans for the future. But don’t take our word for it: hear Tony’s incredible story from the man himself.
