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 step up to the mark this Christmas and put our best foot forward to raise money and awareness for the veterans who have given so much of themselves for our country. This is the time of year to be giving and thinking of others, something which these men and women have done so selflessly. Please, let’s do what we can to show our appreciation this year.”

Walking Home For Christmas is Walking With The Wounded’s annual walking challenge to raise funds for those who served.

This year they’ve joined forces with Help for Heroes to get more people walking and fundraising so we can support more veterans and their families.

Prince Harry called for more collaboration within the military sector in a speech at the Veterans’ Mental Health Conference at King’s College earlier this year. Walking With The Wounded and Help for Heroes have been working together delivering recovery programmes since 2012 and will split all funds raised from this year’s Walking Home For Christmas event to pay for vital support for veterans, including those at risk of social isolation, unemployment or mental health issues.

By creating your own challenging walk and fundraising you can give hope to veterans who have little to look forward to this Christmas and have walked in far more dangerous places for us. So, what better time to give something back to those who have given so much.

The Cumbrian Challenge is Walking With The Wounded’s annual flagship fundraising event for individuals, organisations and companies who want to show their support and experience a memorable team-building weekend in the Lake District alongside the men and women the charity has supported.

There are three routes catering for every ability from the ‘Peak’ – for those new to the fells or carrying a little Christmas excess – to the traditional ‘Tough’ and ‘Tougher’ for the fitter, more confident teams keen on a big day in the beautiful fells.

You’ll face an early start, enjoy a magical (if stretching) walk out onto the fells and be back in time for an evening of music and dinner with your team-mates, alongside our inspirational beneficiaries.

If you haven’t signed up already, join Walking With The Wounded for a fun and challenging weekend at
