Celtic Heritage support and raise money for Help for Heroes. Help for Heroes is a British charity which provides lifelong recovery support to British Armed Forces service personnel who have been wounded or injured in the line of duty, and to their families. Their mission statement can be read below.
We help the Armed Forces community live well after service.
Life can be tough when a military career comes to an end, especially if it has been cut short by illness or injury.
Overnight, people lose not only their job, but also a support network that is like family.
There are many ways we help veterans, their relatives, serving personnel, and people who worked alongside the UK military.
We help people with their physical and mental health needs, and a range of welfare issues.
Our support gives people the skills, confidence and knowledge to make a success of life in the civilian world.
Our teams can help people get back on their feet, if they are having money problems, need somewhere to live, are struggling to get a job, or don’t know how to apply for benefits.
We run sporting and social activities across the UK, and online, to combat loneliness and isolation. We provide financial grants for things such as home adaptations and medical equipment, to help people overcome challenges from illness or injury. Our free online courses and self-help guides give people life skills so they can live independently.
It’s an injustice that people don’t get a fair deal from the country they risked everything for. That’s why we campaign relentlessly to call on Government and society to do better by the veteran community.
