Fire Fighters Charity

The Isle of Wight Fire and Rescue Service are extremely proud of our long history of supporting the Fire Fighters Charity. 

The Fire Fighters Charity is only as strong as the volunteers who help and we are proud of the amazing volunteers and supporters we have in this Service.

The Firefighters Charity is the UK's leading provider of services that enhance quality of life for serving and retired fire fighters, fire personnel and their families. Their vision is to make a positive difference by supporting people in the fire and rescue community when they are in need. Over the years, they have helped hundreds of thousands of individuals by providing world-class treatment and support services. The services they provide are vital to ensuring our fire and rescue community stays fit and healthy, and able to continue their work protecting the general public. They offer a range of support including advice and signposting or residential rehabilitation, mental and emotional wellbeing and recuperation programmes. Their staff can also visit beneficiaries at home if solving the problem needs a more in depth approach and we may be able to provide specialist equipment or bespoke assistance if needed.
