Walking Home For Christmas

How far will you walk to support homeless and other vulnerable veterans?


(individuals and groups or teams)


(could you lead a public walk?)


Walking Home For Christmas is Walking With The Wounded’s campaign to support homeless and other vulnerable veterans this Christmas by helping them to reintegrate into society and lead an independent life, through employment.



  • Just £10 + postage to enter
  • You get a pack with a branded Santa hat, hi-vis vest and wristband
  • Walk as far as is challenging for you, be it 1 mile or 100
  • Could your walk raise £50?
  • Anywhere and any time in December


Many of our veterans have walked in far worse and more dangerous environments than we might care to imagine. Be inspired by their determination and challenge yourself to take part.



Could you lead a public walk?

  • If you are 18+ and want to lead a public walk or a big group walk then sign up as a Captain.
  • Create a walk which anyone can join – then encourage others to get involved.
  • It will be listed on our event map and we will champion your efforts.
  • Already created a walk? Click here to edit/update it.

66,090 reasons to take part*

*The estimated number of ex servicemen and women who left the military between 1991 and 2014 who will need support for service-related physical or mental health issues. (King’s College, 2016)

“There is a good body of evidence suggesting that the majority of those with healthcare needs do not ask for help.” Neil Greenberg, Professor of Defence Mental Health, King’s College, and WWTW trustee.


  • By signing up you will help our innovative programmes support the most vulnerable veterans.
  • This includes homeless veterans, veterans in the criminal justice system and those in need of mental health support.


Walking With The Wounded have given me a lot of support and direction. The harsh reality is  that without this support I would probably have ended up in jail. Sean Cook

When I was injured I was very frustrated and quite angry. I had no confidence and thought I’d never work again. Since then, with the support I have received I have regained about 70% of the freedom I lost when I was injured. Anam Ahmed

“I have purpose again and am valued for what I do and in turn this helps me fight my demons and aid my recovery.” Naomi Adie
