Established in 2010, Walking With The Wounded provides vulnerable veterans’ independence through employment.
We recognise the inherent skills of our armed service personnel and wants to complement these qualities, as well as provide support to transfer their skills into the civilian workplace. We offer assistance through our programmes to those vulnerable veterans who have been physically, mentally or socially disadvantaged by their service and assist them in gaining independence through new long term careers outside of the military. This includes providing support to homeless veterans and veterans in the Criminal Justice System, areas which are too often ignored.
The outcome? Sustainable employment, and independence for them and their families.
“Let’s Talk the Talk and Walk the Walk to raise funds to help our wounded military get back in to work and have their deserved independence. Please take part in Walking Home for Christmas by striding out with friends and family wherever you may be. But don’t forget to wrap up …..Remember there’s no such thing as bad weather, just wrong clothing. Enjoy!”
