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.
To highlight veteran's stories through the ages, Contact Armed Forces has created a video in partnership with Warner Bros. Pictures and the release of Dunkirk, to support the ongoing campaign to build awareness and conversations around mental health.
Walking With The Wounded are working in partnership with BAFSA, and will be running a pilot programme which will be aimed at ex-service personnel from the North of England who are looking for a career as a Fire Sprinkler Installer.
