"This Christmas I will be able to spend a more enjoyable time with my wife and children, knowing my life is heading in a better direction."

Hear Neil's story and find out how Walking Home For Christmas really does make a difference.


"Therapy works. I was in denial for years, suffering in silence. It took 10 years for me to realise I needed support," says Neil from Manchester who joined the Royal Tank Regiment in December 1999.

Neil struggled with his mental health after leaving the Army and was eventually diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). He was referred to WWTW’s mental health programme in January 2016 and completed 12 sessions of therapy. He also received career support from one of WWTW’s employment advisors and is now training to become an Emergency Medical Technician where he enjoys being able to help others.

You can make a difference to the futures of ex-servicemen and women like Neil, simply by going for walk this December. All we ask is that you sign up and put your best foot forward, and in turn serve those who have served us.

"The support I have received from Walking With The Wounded means this Christmas I will be able to spend a more enjoyable time with my wife and children, knowing my life is heading in a better direction."
