About Hero Funds

Over the years, many people have told us they’ve found comfort and hope in supporting Help for Heroes in honour of a friend or family member. Celebrating a loved one in this special way can help to bring families together and provide a positive focus at a very difficult time.


Hero Funds – a lasting tribute to your Hero

Hero Funds are a new and meaningful way to remember a loved one. By creating a Hero Fund in their honour, you can build a lasting memorial to your very own Hero and help hundreds more across the country.

Every donation to your Hero Fund will help to provide life-changing recovery, rehabilitation and support services to wounded, injured and sick Veterans and serving members of the British Armed Forces. Your tribute will help them overcome injury, illness and trauma; and also provide essential support to their families and carers.

Whether you invite others to join you or keep your Hero Fund as a private act of remembrance, your tribute will ensure your Hero’s name, memory and values live on.

“If you’re thinking of donating or fundraising in memory of a loved one, we can only say how much we’ve benefited. We’ve lost but we’ve also been able to give back, and knowing you’re helping others can really help you too.”
