Thank you to The Veterans Foundation

The Veterans Foundation award WWTW £30,000 to support WWTW to reach more veterans in need of mental health support

Walking With The Wounded are grateful for the support of the Veterans Foundation, for a grant to increase the capacity of our mental health programme. The Veterans Foundation raise vital funds and act swiftly to ensure they reach Veterans and members of our Armed Forces family in the most urgent need.

WWTW will use this £30,000 grant to support those who need veteran specific therapy, specifically;

·        To increase the capacity of the programme, allowing us to offer therapy to a large number of veterans and family members

·        To upgrade our data management system, allowing us to collating more data from clients post therapy to track outcomes

Matthew, a Royal Navy veteran who has used our mental health programme, Head Start states: “the sad reality is that if I hadn’t got help when I did, I don’t think I’d be here now. My therapist went above and beyond what she needed to, the care was phenomenal. I have gone from not being able to cope with every day life to the point where I have started my own business.”

The support of the Veterans Foundation has been even more vital in 2020 as Covid-19 presents additional challenges to the veteran community. We thank them for enabling WWTW to continue to provide services for those who have served, in leading fulfilling and independent lives.
