main purpose is to provide modelling sessions, models and modelling
tools to modelling groups benefiting the Armed Forces and Emergency Service personnel recovery organisations.
Over the last 6 months Models for Heroes have received over 60 private referral requests for models to be sent to veterans' homes as part of their mental health recovery plan. Each box costs around £20 to fill with selected donated models, new tools and apply postage and packing. As of midnight 2nd August 2019, our referral scheme is paused and will take no new requests. We have been surprised by the popularity of the referral scheme and have been flooded with referral requests. After reviewing, we have taken the decision to close the scheme temporarily as we cannot support the cost. M4H will work over the next few months to clear the backlog and look at new funding avenues for the scheme to continue. M4H will continue to concentrate on supporting modelling sessions as normal.
