Welcome to the Help for Health Website

Help for Health was established for the relief of the sick and mentally or physically disabled within the boundaries of East Riding of Yorkshire, Kingston upon Hull and both North and North East Lincolnshire. We do this by providing grants to organisations and charities who fit our criteria for support.

Over the past decade we have funded many projects with grants from as little as a few hundred to almost one million pounds. This is another exciting year for the trust with many projects and activities already supported. The trustees are committed to ensure our name ‘Help for Health' is a reality in practice and that the aims and objectives set by our founders and former Chairman and Deputy Chairman, Roger King and Keith Gorton, who sadly died in 2013, are met.

We hope you find everything you need on this site, alternatively contact us via our contact form and we will endeavour to answer your questions as quickly as possible.

Funding Examples

motor neuron disease association


In November 2014 Help for Health made a donation towards support for those living with motor neurone disease (MND) in East Yorkshire and Northern Lincolnshire.

MND is a progressive disease that attacks nerves in the brain and spinal cord that control movement. People can still think and feel but their muscles refuse to work. It affects how people walk, talk, eat, drink and breathe.
