Military Charity, Walking With The Wounded (‘WWTW’) has been shortlisted for the Charity Times Award, Charity of the Year. The Charity Times Award celebrates best practice in the UK Charity and not-for-profit sector.
WWTW Operations Director, Fergus Williams said, ‘It’s fantastic that Walking With The Wounded has been recognised by the Charity Times Awards. Over the past 12 months, we have seen an exponential increase in the demand and need for our support. The WWTW team thrives on helping our ex-servicemen and servicewomen beneficiaries to return to a more comfortable life, and their wellbeing is the main priority. Despite facing many challenges, WWTW has demonstrated that it is a pioneering organisation, our team has the ability to be flexible and think laterally, and we have delivered and will continue to deliver effective care to those that we support”.
Walking With The Wounded works in partnership with our service-users to improve and develop the support and care that we provide. The Charity focuses on three areas: employment, mental health and care coordination to promote social inclusion, stability, and independence. Our aim is to support the significant minority of ex-service personnel and their families who struggle with the transition from the military to ‘civvy street’. Over the past decade, we have helped over 8,000 veterans.
Charity Times editor and chair of the Charity Times Awards, Lauren Weymouth said: “The Charity Times Awards aims to recognise outstanding work achieved across the charity sector. This year, more than ever, the awards aim to celebrate the charities that have – through exceptional circumstances – continued to excel and showcase excellent leadership. We were inundated with some seriously strong entries this year, and so my congratulations go to all of those who made it onto the shortlist.”
