"It’s about the blokes, our men and women of the Armed Forces. It’s about Derek, a rugby player who has lost both his legs, it’s about Carl whose jaw is wired up so he has been drinking through a straw. It’s about Richard who was handed a mobile phone as he lay on the stretcher so he could say goodbye to his wife. It’s about Ben, it’s about Steven and Andy and Mark, it’s about them all. They are just blokes but they are our blokes; they are our heroes. We want to help our heroes."

Every £1 raised for Help for Heroes goes directly to helping the wounded Servicemen and Women. Some examples of what’s been done with the money raised so far:

Capital Projects.

Our funds have been used to build capital projects like the £8m H4H Rehabilitation Complex at Headley Court or the £3.5m treatment centre at Combat Stress.

Grants towards the delivery of support services.

We have partnered SSAFA- Forces Help with a £500,000 grant to provide two Relatives' houses at Selly Oak and Headley Court, and granted Erskine over £750,000 to support the Personnel Recovery Centre at Edinburgh.

Service and Activities

We help support Battle Back adventure training for the wounded and Troop Aid who provide the welfare grab bags. Further along the road, the individuals may spend some time in one of our Personnel Recovery Centres (£20m) or benefit from our funding on an Individual Recovery Programme (£15m). 

They say for every British Soldier killed, there’s 8-12 that have been injured. And as it stands today, 2nd September 2010, there have been 10,070 British soldiers injured since 2003. Most of which have happened in the last 3 years. The work that Help for Heroes does, and every pound raised, helps every single one of these people along the road to recovery.
