Our main purpose is to provide modelling sessions, models and modelling tools to modelling groups benefiting the Armed Forces and Emergency Service personnel. In 2018 we decided to offer a scheme that allowed those unable to reach a modelling session locally for whatever reason an opportunity to enter the hobby.
Over the year of 2019, Models for Heroes received over 80 private referral requests for model making provisions to be sent to veterans' homes as part of their mental health recovery plan. Each box costs around £25 to fill with selected donated models, brand new new tools, sanders, cutting mats and apply postage and packing. Due to the amazing efforts of fundraisers this year we are able to offer this referral scheme on a case by case basis in 2020.
If you are a clinicial healthcare professional you can request a referral form from us. Your intended patient must have an interest in model making. Please contact us by email firstname.lastname@example.org
