Walking With The Wounded to receive new mental health grant from the Veterans’ Foundation

The Veterans’ Foundation has awarded Walking With The Wounded’s (WWTW) mental health programme, Head Start, with a new grant dedicated to increasing capacity of the programme and giving faster access to mental health treatments for veterans.


The grant was given to organisations that are part of The Contact Group which comprises of third sector and private organisations that work together to improve the mental health of the UK Armed Forces community, including veterans and their families.

As part of the grant, WWTW will provide mental health treatment to 32 veterans who may not have been able to access treatment or have not been able to access it in a timely way.

Carolyn Brown, WWTW Clinical Lead, said, “The new grant from the Veterans’ Foundation will enable more veterans who are experiencing mental ill-health to access WWTW’s ‘Head Start’ programme.

Over the coming months, we are aiming to support an additional 32 veterans, ensuring that they receive quick access to appropriate mental health treatment.”

WWTW’s mental health programme provides 1-2-1 private therapy for ex-service personnel with mild to moderately severe mental health difficulties such as depression, anxiety, PTSD, and adjustment disorder. Therapy is provided via face-to-face and digital sessions.
