Awards 2016-2017

In 2016, we opened our first regional hub in Manchester on Canada Street with the help of DIY SOS. Walking With The Wounded’s hub on the street was built as a result of the project to support those vulnerable and hard-to-reach ex-servicemen and women in the region and beyond who have struggled most since leaving the Armed Forces. Some of them have been homeless, some have been in police custody and many have mental health difficulties. For many ex-servicemen and women, employment is a key factor in regaining their independence. Since its opening, the hub has won a plethora of awards including: 

  • Winner: National and West of England, Royal Television Society Best Popular Factual and Features series
  • Winner: UK Housing Awards - Outstanding Local Authority (MCC)
  • Winner: Local Authority Building Awards NW (LABC) Best inclusive building
  • Winner: RICS NW Regeneration; Highly Commended: North West Regional Construction Awards - Integration and Collaborative Working category

Awards 2011

In 2011, Walking With The Wounded embarked on its first unsupported expedition to the North Pole with wounded veterans. On 16th April 2011, our team, including 4 wounded soldiers, successfully arrived at the North Pole. They covered the greatest distance of any polar expedition that season, man-hauling their sledges, containing all of their equipment and supplies, over 200 miles.

As a nation, we need to support our soldiers when they return to normal life. Walking with the wounded supports these veterans back into work.
