Help for Heroes (H4H) was founded by Bryn and Emma Parry after a visit to Selly Oak Hospital in the summer of 2007.They met some extraordinary, brave, young men and women and decided they wanted to do something to help. The Charity was launched in October 2007 with the aim of raising £500k for a swimming pool at Headley Court but which turned into building an £8.5m Rehabilitation Centre.

It's simple message, 'It's not about the rights and wrongs of war, we just want to support those who serve our country and are injured in doing so', caught the imagination of the public who wanted to show their support for the Armed Forces. With the backing of the media, celebrities and an army of volunteers and fundraisers across the country, H4H now supports thousands of wounded, sick and injured Servicemen and women and their families.

H4H is a tri-service military charity, providing support to full time and reservist Servicemen and women and veterans from the Royal Navy, Army and Royal Air Force who have suffered life-changing injuries and illnesses whilst serving our country. This is provided through grants to individuals and other Service charities, capital build projects and the four H4H Recovery Centres across the UK which offer support for life. The money raised by the hugely generous public has been used to support the wounded, but there is still so much more to do. Soldiers, sailors and airmen who are injured today will still need support tomorrow and in the days that follow, for the rest of their lives. They are still battling and Help for Heroes won't let them battle alone.
