Help for Heroes has become the main sponsor for the 10th Armed Forces & Veterans Expo, which takes place on Thursday May 11 at St James’ Park, Newcastle.
The event is open to anyone from the forces community to attend be they serving, looking at resettlement, in resettlement, ex-military looking to network or recruitment opportunities, military spouses and partners.
Respected Armed Forces charity, Help For Heroes will now become the official sponsor for the event.
Pathfinder editor, Mal Robinson said: ” We are delighted to have a forces charity with the calibre and esteem that Help For Heroes has. Having served with the RAF, I am fully aware of the tremendous work they have produced over the years, especially injured troops from Iraq and Afghanistan.
I look forward to welcoming them on the day and seeing as many people there as possible, for what will be another super event in the expo series.”
More about Help For Heroes…
Help for Heroes champions the Armed Forces community and helps them live well after service. So they feel valued, supported, and recognised.
Help for Heroes supports members of the Armed Forces community and their families to live well after service, so they feel valued, supported, and recognised. Life can be tough when a military career comes to an end, especially if it has been cut short by illness or injury.
Overnight, people lose not only their job, but also a support network that’s like family.
There are many ways the Charity helps veterans, their relatives, serving personnel, and people who worked alongside the UK military.
• Helping people with their physical and mental health needs, and a range of welfare issues.
• Helping people get back on their feet, if they’re having money problems, need somewhere to live, are struggling to get a job, or don’t know how to apply for benefits.
• Running a wide range of sporting, leisure and social activities across the UK, and online, to combat loneliness and isolation, and to improve wellbeing.
• Providing financial grants for things such as home adaptations and medical equipment, to help people overcome challenges from illness or injury.
• Offering free online courses and self-help guides to give people the skills, knowledge and confidence to make a success of life in the civilian world. It’s an injustice that people don’t get a fair deal from the country they risked everything for. That’s why Help for Heroes campaigns relentlessly and passionately to call on Government and society to do better by the veteran community.
