The Fire Fighters Charity supports the mental health, physical health and social wellbeing of all serving and retired members of the UK’s fire services community. Thousands of beneficiaries are supported every year, and it’s not just firefighters. The Charity exists to support all fire and rescue service personnel, whatever their role in the service – as well as spouses, partners and dependants.

This is something the Charity, for which Her Majesty The Queen acts as a Patron, has continued to honour since it was founded. You can find out more on its history here:

Charity’s history

There are so many reasons why supporting us would be the right decision for your business. Here’s just a few…

Bespoke support

The support provided to each beneficiary depends on individual need. That essentially means every time we offer help, it’s bespoke to that person – and this is what we promise to offer every small business, corporate and larger organisation when you partner with us… a truly tailored partnership that works for all involved.

Have a local as well as national impact

While we are a national Charity, we have a huge local impact – and that’s all because of the work we do in communities.

Our fundraisers work closely with all Fire and Rescue Services in their areas, getting to know beneficiaries first-hand and spreading the word about new opportunities directly – which would prove invaluable when promoting your business or partnership goals.

You will be supported by our fundraising team throughout, who are experts in their field of work, and have a dedicated fundraiser assigned to you. They will work to ensure your goals are met from word go.

You’ll be supporting key workers

By supporting us you’ll also be supporting the heroes that have been on the frontline and going above and beyond to help others throughout the pandemic.

Whilst still undertaking the day-to-day duties of the fire and rescue service, our firefighters have been providing support to their communities throughout the pandemic. In London, as one example, they have driven ambulances to assist London Ambulance Service and responded to Covid-19 deaths in their community. They have also continued to respond swiftly to incidents across the capital, as well as delivering food to vulnerable Londoners and distributing PPE.

One LFB firefighter who joined in this incredible effort was Uzair Yaqoob, who volunteered to drive ambulances for his emergency services colleagues. You can read his story here:

Uzair’s story 

Alongside all of this, many services and our beneficiaries are now involved in Covid testing and delivery of the mass vaccination programme. We have remained here for all of them throughout, and with your support, we can continue to be into the future. By supporting us, you’ll be supporting them and their future.

It’s good for business

On top of all of that, supporting us is unquestionably good for your business.

According to research by Forresters, when asked to choose between two companies that offered products and services for the same price, 82% said their decision would be affected by whether a company engaged with charities.

Working together – both within the organisation, and with external partners – we will collaborate with you throughout.

Why not make this small move today, to ensure a lasting impact in the future?
