Retired community

Our support extends into retirement for every member of the UK's fire services community, helping you to live happier and healthier throughout your lives. Find out more on how we could support you, as well as ways you can remain socially connected with each other.

Support that lasts a lifetime

Just because you've finished your time in the fire service, doesn't mean the support available to you has finished. You're a beneficiary for life. That means we can support you and your dependants for the rest of your life. Below are some of the ways we can help you to enjoy a happy, healthy retirement.

How we can help you

You've spent your career helping others, so now we're here to help you. Whether it's assisting with your health, helping you stay socially connected or signposting you to wellbeing resources to keep you healthy, we're here to help you lead a happy retirement.

Upcoming residential programmes

Alongside our usual physical rehabilitation, Reset, nursing and Rest and Recharge stays, as well as our online programmes and workshops, we're holding a number of specialised programmes at our three centres over the coming months.

You can find a calendar of these programmes through to March 2025 by clicking the button below.
