The Royal British Legion Funding

Fantastic news! Huge thanks to the Royal British Legion. Just received, significant funding support to help towards our charity’s operational costs for another year. (Those expenses that are vital for a charity to operate but understandably can be more difficult to raise). This will allow us that extra breathing space to focus on what we do best: offering support to that small number of service leavers and veterans (and their partners/spouses) who may find transition somewhat challenging.

F4H Support to Brathay Windermere Marathon Long Weekend May 2018.

Our best yet! The largest number of former delegates travelling back to Brathay, allowing almost all of the refreshments stands to be staffed by F4H volunteers (5 of 7). As well as taking part in reinforcement and revision packages: #thejourneycontinues. Three former delegates ‘tabbed’ the marathon and 4 ran it, the remainder (and members of their family) staffed the stands. Great funding raised, thank you all. The second annual stone balancing competition fiercely contested – 3 joint winners! The long weekend enjoyed by all.

F4H Recent Funding News

Some excellent news recently confirmed. Both The Soldiers’ Charity and the RAF Benevolent Fund have agreed continued funding support to our charity. The former with a huge boost to army veterans’ attendance costs for the coming year; the latter with fantastic, always-welcome help towards our operational costs. Many thanks to both organisations for their backing that enables us to offer our personal change programme to the minority of leavers and veterans who may find their transition from the military traumatic or challenging.

Future for Heroes – Veterans’ Foundation Support

Huge thanks to the Veterans’ Foundation for their recent funding support. A fantastic amount to help us with those critical things that allow a charity to operate: funding to cover bespoke training for our volunteers, IT equipment to replace our current holdings that are coal-fired, and PR/merchandising apparatus allowing us to reach out to a wider audience – prospective delegates and like-minded organisations – letting people know what we deliver.

Miramar Executive Search – Supporting Future for Heroes

Over this last year Miramar, an executive search company based in Richmond, Surrey, has given fantastic support to Future for Heroes. As their adopted charity, their backing has ranged from financial support, raising awareness of our charity in both the national and international corporate arenas, the provision of much-needed IT and social media awareness training (thank you Forefront Media), to fulfilling their ‘proper’ role in executive search, finding potential new trustees for our charity.

Visit to RAF Halton: Future for Heroes (F4H) / The Brathay Trust – Recruit Graduation Parade

The CEO of F4H and The Brathay Trust’s Senior Learning and Development Consultant had the honour of being invited to RAF Halton to witness the latest recruit Graduation Parade. It was a moving and humbling experience, bringing back memories from May 1983 for this particular individual! It was a privilege to share the obvious pride and joy being shown by so many Mums, Dads, friends and families as their sons and daughters began their careers in the RAF. Many thanks to Station Commander RAF Halton for his hospitality.
