What we do and how your donations will help

Help for Heroes provides life-changing recovery and support services for wounded, injured and sick military personnel and veterans. No matter when or where someone served, or how long they spent in uniform, we give our Heroes and their families the help and tools they need to rebuild their lives.

None of this would be possible without amazing friends like you who share our commitment to the brave men and women who put their lives on the line for us. 97% of our funding comes from the great British public, and every donation makes a world of difference to our wounded heroes and their families.

So far we’ve helped more than 27,000 wounded veterans but we know thousands more are struggling to deal with the long-term effects of their service. We’re determined to reach as many people as we can and you can help us do that – all in your loved one’s name and memory.

With your help our specialist staff can provide a wide range of services including one-to-one clinical care, occupational therapy and physio; psychological wellbeing therapies and free and confidential counselling; specialist equipment and housing adaptations; adaptive sports; welfare grants; and housing and benefits advice . 

We also help families and carers through family days, respite breaks, our Hidden Wounds counselling service and access to our nationwide and 12,00 strong Sport, Activities and Fellowship network.

Our services are delivered face to face in people's homes and safe community settings, at our War Injuries Clinic, online and over the phone. In this way we can reach as many veterans and families as possible.  

Recovery is about more than repairing damaged bodies and minds; it’s about rebuilding lives and relationships, restoring confidence and renewing hope. You can give our wounded veterans a second chance at life - and all in honour of your very own hero.
