Urgent Appeal

OUR WOUNDED HEROES NEED YOU NOW MORE THAN EVER. PLEASE HELP US
KEEP OUR PROMISE TO THEM.

Thirteen years ago, we promised to be here for wounded veterans, for life, no matter what. So, it’s hard to admit that this year, due to the pandemic, we’re struggling. 

Coronavirus has had a devastating impact on the lives of wounded veterans and their families. We’re doing everything we can to protect our life-changing services but, at a time when our heroes need us more than ever, the future of our work is at serious riskPlease help us keep our promise to them. 

Our income is falling dramatically, and we urgently need your help.

A massive 97 per cent of our funding comes from the generosity of the British public, and a huge portion of that is raised through big events, like marathons or other challenges which have had to be cancelled. On top of this, we’re expecting a 30 per cent reduction in our regular income over the coming years, due to recession.

This puts the future of our services at serious risk.

We’ve supported vulnerable veterans and their families throughout lockdown. But now, with up to 90 team members facing redundancy due to financial pressures and three of our recovery centres closed for the foreseeable future, it’s hard to see how we can continue providing that support.

Due to the pandemic, the number of veterans and service personnel struggling with their mental and physical health has risen by 33 per cent. This is based on those who have come forward for support – many more may still be suffering in silence.

This Remembrance Day, you can help us keep our promise to support wounded veterans and their families. Please donate now.

Throughout lockdown, regular video calls with our Hidden Wounds team helped former Marine Sean Ivey cope with the heightened impact of his Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). “I feel more prepared now for bouts of low mood and negativity,” he says. “Without support from Help for Heroes during lockdown, I would not have got through it in the way I have.”

“I already found sleeping difficult. Lockdown made it worse,” says RAF veteran Stephanie Shaw. “My home and work-life blended together and there was no escape.” Our online sleep course helped Stephanie tackle the underlying anxieties affecting her sleep. “The pandemic has been awful for those suffering with poor mental health. Thank goodness for Help for Heroes.”
