Fire fighters charity
The Fire Fighters Charity supports over 5,000 beneficiaries a year through a broad range of services. It looks to provide support for injured firefighters and their families in their time of need.
People that may benefit from our services include:
Fire and rescue service personnel (whole time, retained, uniformed and support)
Former fire and rescue service personnel
Former works firefighters
Those engaged on or assisting in the management or provision of a Fire Services Youth Scheme
Eligible dependants of any person falling within the above
Fire and rescue service chaplains or faith leaders
Fire and rescue service volunteers
In 2015/16 the Charity supported 5,107 individuals – three per cent more than in 2014/15. This figure is rising year on year and the Charity is committed to supporting as many beneficiaries as it possible can at its centres and within local communities across the UK. However, in order to do this it is essential that our income each year – from voluntary donations and fundraising – matches the cost of delivering our services. At the moment it doesn’t and this needs to change, which is why we ask all those we support, and indeed all those individuals who are eligible for support, to donate towards the running of their Charity.
