2021 - WWTW's Year in Numbers
2021 was a year when the team at Walking With The Wounded pulled together and continued to work tirelessly to ensure that our support services were available to veterans and their families.
It is without a doubt that 2021 was another challenging year for all of us. The Covid-19 pandemic continued to impact our daily lives, and we found ourselves yet again, facing restrictions and uncertainty.
That said, 2021 was a year when the team at Walking With The Wounded pulled together and continued to work tirelessly to ensure that our support services were available to veterans and their families. Last year, our team:
- Supported 3,009 veterans across the UK
- 608 veterans and their family members, were helped by our mental health team
- 247 people secured paid employment thanks to our incredible Employment Advisors
- OP-REGEN, our volunteering programme, saw 170 people put their hand up to support their local community
- WWTW Care Coordinators helped 486 beneficiaries
- The Project Nova team supported 1,226 veterans who were on the periphery of the criminal justice system
It was also the year when our Grenadier Walk of Oman expedition team (*Reimagined in the UK) trekked from Wales to London to demonstrate how anyone can overcome adversity and injuries, whether physical or mental, Brian Wood MC ran 635 miles in just 30 days in memory of those who gave the ultimate sacrifice during the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts, our annual Cumbrian Challenge event saw hundreds of eager teams climb the fells in the Lake District and raise a phenomenal amount to support those who served and President Biden and Dr. Jill Biden met with our Walk of America Expedition team whilst they were visiting the UK.
Our achievements would not be possible without our supporters and people like you. Thank you for continuing to support Walking With The Wounded, whether that’s by signing up to our events, donating or simply subscribing to our newsletter.
