"Walking Home For Christmas brings the veteran community together to support those in need."
Read Sean's story and hear how Walking Home For Christmas really does make a difference.
"WWTW, Project Nova and Step into Health have all given me a lot of support and direction. The harsh reality is that without this support I would probably have ended up in jail," says Sean from Norwich, who served as an Infantry gunner in 26 Regiment Royal Artillery for 6 years.
Sean was diagnosed with mild to moderate hearing loss and tinnitus as a result of blast trauma whilst on operations in Afghanistan. He was medically discharged and shortly afterwards taken into custody for common assault. It was there that the custody sergeant suggested that Walking With The Wounded’s Project Nova get in touch.
Project Nova discussed Sean’s work aspirations and in 2015 he successfully secured a place on a one year Access to Higher Education Course at City College in Norwich. He also completed a two week Step Into Health course at the Norfolk & Norwich Hospital and was offered a work placement in a physiotherapy department in February 2015.
He has since developed a keen interest in becoming a Physiotherapist and has just begun studying Occupational Therapy at Northampton University.
Please put your best foot forward this December and serve those who have served us.
"Christmas has always been a special time for me but I know it can be hard for others. Walking Home For Christmas brings the veteran community together to support those in need – those who are less fortunate than me."
