Our proud history

Whilst sitting around a table one day, a group of Firefighters wanted to do something to support their colleagues and their families in times of need. Money was put into a biscuit tin to be given to those who needed support – this was the beginning of our organisation and firefighters helping firefighters. Thirty plus years on our ethos is the same, we are here to Support you and your family. Firefighters helping Firefighters and their families. Read more about our history here.
