The Fire Fighters Charity invites you to join its team running the Great North Run, the world's most popular half marathon! This iconic race has a fantastic atmosphere, starting in the heart of Newcastle and finishing along the seafront at South Shields. Register for this great event and support our fire and rescue service community.


The people working in our fire and rescue services see, hear and experience trauma on a daily basis, bringing calm professionalism to environments of often intense emotion and stress. But the impact of that work, whether as a one-off event or through prolonged exposure, can have a life-changing impact on an individual’s mental health and wellbeing. The Fire Fighters Charity is uniquely placed to help.

Having supported fire fighters and their families with their physical health and psychological wellbeing since 1943, we understand the impact that their work can have on their mental health. Our specialist teams, facilities and tailor-made environments allow us to provide support that is specific to the fire services community, utilising decades of experience to equip our beneficiaries with the tools they need to manage their mental health and physical rehabilitation.
