Help for Heroes

Help for Heroes – Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner (maternity cover)


At Help for Heroes, we believe those who serve our country deserve support when they are wounded. Every day, men and women have to leave their career in the Armed Forces as a result of physical or psychological wounds; their lives changed forever. We help them, and those still serving, to recover and get on with their lives. We give them physical, psychological, financial and welfare support for as long as they need it. We also support their families, because they too can be affected by their loved one’s wounds.

We receive almost no funding from the Government, which means we rely on the spirit and generosity of the great British public, our partners and volunteers to keep going. Rest assured, we continue to put pressure on the Government to do more.

So far, with your help, we have supported more than 25,000 people, but we know that many more still need us. We won’t stop until every wounded veteran gets the support they deserve.

We have an incredible opportunity for a Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner to join our Team in Phoenix House Recovery Centre, Catterick (remote at least until end of October 2020) on an FTC basis. Please see below for more information on what just might be your future role.
