About Hounds for Heroes
Who We Are:
Hounds for Heroes is a UK registered charity who provide specially trained assistance dogs to injured or disabled personnel of both the UK Armed Forces and Emergency Services. We aim to provide help and practical support leading to an enhanced quality of life.
What We Do:
Since its establishment in 2010, Hounds for Heroes have successfully partnered 18 specially trained assistance dogs with clients, currently have 10 active partnerships and delivered more than 79 dog years of specialist training. Our assistance dogs have proven to help someone overcome physical barriers and obstacles caused by their disability, promoting an increased sense of freedom and wellbeing and providing a loyal comrade and in many cases the beginning of a new life. We also understand that everyone’s needs and personalities are different, which is why we train our dogs to assist with general tasks as well as working on bespoke tasks to suit partners’ individual needs.
Why We Need You:
Hounds for Heroes does not receive any government funding, therefore we rely solely on donations from the public and legacies to help us continue to enhance the lives of injured or disabled UK Armed Forces or Emergency Services personnel. We want to help as many injured or disabled ex-service personnel as possible through the provision of our assistance dogs. It is our ambitious, yet necessary, mission to train and partner a minimum of eight new dogs per year from 2022 onwards. However, we need to raise £300,000 each year to achieve our goal. By supporting Hounds for Heroes you will help deliver this mission and give someone a better quality of life through a partnership with a specially trained assistance dog.

We’ll ensure you get a charity discount of £25 off our 10,000ft or 15,000ft skydives when your charity is selected. Determine if your charity expects you to meet a fundraising target or if you will be self-funding the skydive.
You’re all set to start fundraising once you’ve booked your skydive! Your charity can help you with fundraising, and we’ll be available to answer any questions you have about the skydive!

You can still jump for them!
Non-partnered charities at GoSkydive offer a unique opportunity to make a positive impact while experiencing the exhilaration of skydiving. These charities, though not officially affiliated with GoSkydive, collaborate to raise funds and awareness for various causes. Participants can choose a cause close to their hearts and raise money individually or as part of a team, diving headfirst into an adrenaline-fuelled adventure that also helps those in need.
Our non-partnered charities still receive the same great discount of £25 off a 10,000ft or 15,000ft skydive that our partnered charities do. All you need to do is pay the balance of your skydive yourself and fundraise as much as you can for your chosen charity on the side!
