Between 1999 and 2019, almost 40,000 service personnel were medically discharged from the British Armed Forces. For some veterans, the implications of their service only surface across the months and years after it has come to an end. 

Many of these individuals will need help to address physical or mental health issues. This is what Help for Heroes do – they provide a range of services, resources and activities to wounded veterans, supporting them to live healthy, secure and purposeful lives. 

The charity provides high-quality recovery services and remains responsive to the emerging needs of the wounded and their families. The combination of services and support they offer are all delivered by health professional teams. 

Their main aim is to enable wounded veterans recover and get on with their lives. They work with each individual to agree a combination of support that is tailored to their own recovery needs.

When Do You Start Paying Council Tax After Moving House?

You should start paying council tax as soon as you move into your new house. If you don’t start making your council tax payments straight away, Doncaster Council will simply backdate your payments and you could end up with a rather large bill. 

Setting up your Doncaster Council Tax payments should be fairly simple for anyone moving within the town as they won’t need to update their direct debit. However, anyone moving into or out of Doncaster will need to set up a new direct debit with their local authority.

“Slothmove is really good, I was looking at some thing’s to see how I can move my address over quickly and then I came across this. I was a bit skeptical at first due to it being something online and I thought it was a scam but nope, it was really quick and easy to get it all done and dusted.”
