Specialist lifelong support for the UK’s fire services community

Working in and experiencing traumatic situations on a regular basis, making life or death decisions under intense pressure and maintaining close relationships with local communities, there are few roles as psychologically, physically and socially demanding as those in our fire and rescue services.

Ours is a charity that dedicates itself to supporting the everyday heroes, past and present, of the fire services community. We are the people to whom the life savers turn when they need help, whether recovering from physical injury or illness, or from psychological trauma. By supporting them as individuals, they can support the public whenever and wherever they may be needed.
