Future for Heroes is a charity organisation serving the British armed forces. Formed in 2008, the charity was originally called Remount, using the strap line ‘the future for heroes’.
It was recognised that some armed forces personnel leaving the military needed help in making the physical and emotional adjustments necessary to successfully reintegrate into civilian life. Many who struggle to make the adjustment can end up living rough or in prison. Others can look to dependency for the answers. We provide free residential courses where individuals are encouraged to reflect and learn from their past, realise their current circumstances and begin to plan for their future.
The object of the charity is to develop the ability of both serving and retired members of the armed forces, as well as their spouses/partners, to manage the dramatic change in cultures when resuming civilian life. The individuals, from across all ranks of the 3 services, are better able to identify and meet their post-military needs and so can participate fully in society.
Whilst delegates include all military leavers irrespective of their individual situations, a number who attend are referred to Future for Heroes from organisations that support the more vulnerable, those for whom falling into unemployment, offending and destructive behaviour is a real risk. Whatever personal circumstances are, all leave Future for Heroes having benefited from attending.
The charity’s official title is: Remount T/A Future for Heroes Ltd
