To support vulnerable veterans on both sides of the Atlantic, demonstrating the Special Relationship between the UK and US off the battlefield as well as on it.
Prince Harry stated that as allies we fight together, and so should recover together, a vision demonstrated through the Invictus Games.
WWTW has previously included US servicemen and women on our expeditions to demonstrate this alliance.
VTAP is about developing this relationship further by providing funding to support veterans projects both in the US and UK, and by working together to improve the care we can deliver in the future.
- Developing service delivery partnerships with a focus on homelessness, employment and mental health.
- Building a network of partners to fund VTAP both in the US and UK.
- Sharing information and knowledge to improve the care and service delivered to our veterans.
- Influencing strategic areas which impact our veteran communities
VTAP will focus on three core areas of support for veterans – homelessness, employment and mental health. In the UK this will be through WWTW existing programs. In the US, VTAP has identified a number of partners which it will be initially supporting. In the future we aim to increase the number of programs in order to broaden the support VTAP is providing, both in the US and UK.
We constantly need to improve the care and support our wounded receive.
Exciting advances are being made on both sides of the Atlantic and VTAP will help to further develop the knowledge bridge so both US and UK practitioners can share in advancement.
We also aim to bring together care givers from both nations to share in each others day to day experiences to learn first hand of the techniques and impact of their work.
There is so much we can learn from each other to provide more effective support for ‘Our Wounded’.
We need to be able to address long term strategic issues which impact our veterans. By using the influence of VTAP, and its partners, many of whom are thought leaders, we hope to address challenges in the following areas:
- To address the need to provide work experience, training, internships and long-term employment opportunities to veterans
- Challenging corporate responsibility strategies
- Drawing attention to long term strategic issues facing veterans
- Military Charities
- Promoting collaboration
- Driving consolidation
