On the day, there will be various stalls and fundraising activities on the event field to help support National and Local charities.

Walking the Wounded

Established in 2010, Walking With The Wounded supports a pathway for vulnerable veterans to re-integrate back into society and sustain their independence. At the heart of this journey is 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 sustaining their independence through new sustainable 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.

Our programmes each address a barrier to reintegrating back into society. Head Start supports those with mental health difficulties, Project Nova works with veterans in police custody, Home Straight with homeless veterans, or those at risk of being homeless and First Steps which provides access to the necessary training and qualifications required for their chosen civilian career. These programmes are complimented by sector specific projects like Step Into Health which provides a pathway for veterans into the NHS.

Our programmes work in harmony to support vulnerable, wounded, injured and sick veterans in their pathway to sustainable employment and regaining their independence.
