Help for Heroes
Help for Heroes was founded in 2007 to provide direct, practical support for wounded, injured and sick Servicemen, women and veterans ('the Blokes') and their loved ones.
We want our Armed Forces (both Regular and Reserves), veterans and their families to know they can depend on SSAFA for support now and for the rest of their lives. Our values mean we are committed, practical and understanding.
Seafarers UK has been helping people in the maritime community for over 100 years, by providing vital support to seafarers in need and their families, and to those in education or training who are preparing to work or serve at sea. The charity does this by giving grants to organisations and projects that make a real difference to people’s lives, across the Merchant Navy, Fishing Fleets, Royal Navy and Royal Marines.
Your support will help fund free advice and support for seafarers, when they are injured at sea, have mental health issues or problems with housing or debt, or help to ensure that young seafarers have access to the best quality training and safety, or help to improve the quality of life for retired seafarers and veterans by providing shelter and care, as well as some daily essentials that a small pension (or none) cannot cover.
The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity
Through grants to ships and units who are deployed, post-service transition, family support and care in old age, the RNRMC is helping to create a world in which our serving men and women’s sacrifice is recognised and that they are supported no matter what. We are there to provide a safety net for those who find themselves in immediate need, we support counselling services, mental health provision and those who need the most basic of help, a roof over their heads and a hot meal.
As a world-class grant maker of over ten years, the RNRMC has distributed in excess of 60 million pounds in support of the naval service https://www.rnrmc.org.uk/about-us

ABF The Soldiers Charity are for soldiers, for life. They provide financial assistance to all soldiers and their families when in need whether the soldier has left the Army or not. The scope for their work is huge. Half of their money is given direct to individuals to help in areas such as debt relief, mobility assistance, education bursaries, care home fees and respite breaks. The other half is given as grants to other charities.
Royal British Legion
The Royal British Legion (RBL), sometimes referred to as the The British Legion or The Legion, is a British charity providing financial, social and emotional support to members and veterans of the British Armed Forces, their families and dependants.
