FelixFund Logo

Felix Fund has been in existence since April 2011 when it was established to meet the then urgent needs of British bomb disposal and search personnel and their families. This small and unique trade within the British Army has very specific requirements which could not be adequately met by general service charities.

The aim of Felix Fund is to provide welfare support and financial assistance to these trades within the British Army, Royal Navy and Royal Air Force and to their families, particularly following their experiences in Iraq and Afghanistan.
