An introduction from the Chair

Chair of The Fire Fighters Charity, Andrew Lynch, introduces you to the 2017-20 Strategic Plan, explaining what it entails and why it's so important that we all get behind it.

Our Four Key Areas

Over the next three years the Charity will focus its work across four key areas. Covered in detail in the 'Strategic Plan 2017-20' PDF - downloadable from the link above - these four areas of work will touch every area of activity across the Charity's three centres, its Head Office, its community-based employees and its volunteer network.
