Walking With The Wounded are delighted to announce that The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity have awarded us £24,000 to support those who have served in the Royal Navy or Royal Marines.
WWTW are grateful for the continued support of The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity, who are the principal charity of the Royal Navy. They exist to support sailors, marines and their families, for life. They have enabled us to provide our employment, mental health and care coordination programmes since 2017.
WWTW will use this £24,000 grant to support those who served in the Royal Navy or Royal Marines, specifically;
- To maintain family relationships
- To improve the transition to civilian life
- To continue to support those who need ongoing support post-transition to civilian life, particularly around employment.
This funding will help support veterans like Michael (name changed). With a career in the Royal Marines no longer possible, Michael said that if it wasn’t for such rapid access to a therapist he wouldn’t be in the better place that he now finds himself in.
“I hope more veterans will take similar journeys to me and lean on WWTW to get the support they need.” Michael’s biggest achievement has been “accepting myself, finding out who I am and being happy with where I’m at.”
We thank The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity for supporting the work we do to continue to provide services for those who have served, in leading fulfilling and independent lives.
