Welcome to The Fire Fighters Charity

This last year has been an exciting time for us here at The Fire Fighters Charity – not only marking our 70th anniversary, but also the start of our rehabilitation services being delivered over seven days of the week and the official opening of Marine Court’s new rehabilitation wing. Fire fighters put their own lives on the line to save others every minute of every day. Many sustain serious physical injuries in the line of duty and many more go through emotional trauma after rescuing people from desperate situations. We give the fire community and their families the support they need to stay healthy and doing their jobs well.

Our new flexible programme of rehabilitation allows for a more bespoke length of stay and enables us to fulfil our beneficiaries’ needs more effectively.  Our increased intake days are now supporting fast track and slow stream rehabilitation, as well as our new mental health and emotional wellbeing services.  Waiting times have also significantly reduced, all thanks to our new 7-day-a-week service. Ultimately, fire fighters are now able to return to their life-saving work much sooner.

Our Charity receives no government funding, meaning we can't provide our vital services without your help!
