The Fire Fighters Charity is the UK's leading provider of services that enhance quality of life for serving and retired fire service personnel and their families. We're available for all members of the fire service community during their times of need, assisting thousands of individuals every year by providing rehabilitation and support services.

Offering a free confidential and impartial helpline service, providing advice and support on a broad range of issues, as well as having a nationwide network of professional staff and trained volunteers, who are ready to help locally. We aim to provide practical assistance and solutions to make a real difference to the lives of members of the fire service community.

Always putting the needs of our beneficiaries first, our three rehabilitation centres in Devon, Cumbria, and West

Sussex have the expertise to enable members of the fire service community to return to maximum independence following illness or injury. We also focus on promoting and enabling each client's own health and wellbeing, along with helping them to learn the skills, knowledge and techniques to effectively self-manage their own condition or injury.

We also offer recuperation breaks that provide the fire and rescue service community with chance to relax in peaceful and tranquil surroundings, which can aid emotional recovery following illness, injury, or other problems.

 Fundraising is the lifeblood of any charity, and as we reach out to more and more people in need through these challenging times, it is vital that we have sufficient resources to help them. It's thanks to our dedicated supporters across the UK that we are able to assist thousands of members of the fire and rescue service every year. It costs £9m every year to meet the needs of our beneficiaries, and with no government funding, we are completely reliant upon donations from the general public and fire community.
