Through fundraising, projects, donations and the support of others, we’re able to provide assistance to Emergency Service Personnel and the Armed Forces. As well as raising awareness of the issues faced by our brave everyday heroes, we offer practical and accessible support to those who need it.
Why We’re Needed
Due to funding cuts and an increase in assaults on Emergency Services Personnel, our Armed Forces and Emergency Services are under more pressure than ever before. Since 2010, budgets have reduced 30% for the Fire Service, 20% for Police Service, and the Ambulance Service has seen a cut of £75m in funding.
Whilst budgets are cut the demand on the emergency services increases, putting extra strain on the health of our front line staff. Reported crime has increased, and so has emergency response times. Less resources are available and staff are having to endure an excessive workload and longer hours, severely impacting their mental well-being:
have experienced stress, low mood or poor mental health at some point
have contemplated taking their own life (5% have made an actual attempt)
have contemplated leaving their job as a result of stress or mental health
Those who help us to help them
