Help for Heroes

Help for Heroes Registration Page

Thanks to the fantastic British public, Help for Heroes has raised much needed funds to support members of the Armed Forces who are injured, wounded, or have become sick in the service of our country. All funds raised to date have either been allocated or spent on the direct, practical support of the wounded.

Help for Heroes is working with the MOD and the British Legion to create five regional Personal Recovery centres.  (There are four currently in operation.) The centres provide facilities to support two key parts of the recovery process: holistic life skills and activities to get the wounded, sick and injured back out doing what they enjoy the most. From learning new skills, to access to psychological, financial, employment, prosthetic and social support, the Recovery Centres are a “one stop welfare shop” for our wounded and their families.

AIHHP supports Help for Heroes

AIHHP members provide a range of quality services including hearing assessments, hearing aid provision, hearing protection and other specialised services related to hearing. AIHHP strive to promote credible and accessible hearing care which means it’s also very important to us to be involved with registered, strong valued and charitable organisations such as Help for Heroes.
