WWTW’s Employment Advisors are embedded in veteran supported accommodation residences or with NHS regional veteran mental health teams, helping unemployed veterans to find employment and rebuild their lives. Advisors build confidence, organise work placements, source funding for any required training and ultimately assist in securing sustainable employment.
WWTW has adopted the Individual Placement & Support (IPS) model to assist UK veterans who are unemployed and are also struggling with their mental health.
Our Employment Programme has been independently reviewed and shown to be three times more effective than our nearest comparator, with every £1 spent by WWTW achieving £3 in social benefit.
In 2018 and 2019 our IPS services in Essex and Greater Manchester were both recognised as IPS Centres of Excellence for Veterans by the Centre for Mental Health. The award recognises the quality of IPS service provided to veterans by WWTW in partnership with other local and regional military and mental health organisations.
Since our network of advisors was first established in 2014, 1245 veterans have received employment support. Last year, we saw 216 new registrations and a total of 540 being supported. 151 paid outcomes were achieved for those individuals and a further 282 unpaid outcomes , such as a work placement or volunteering placement, were secured.
"Scott sorted out my accommodation and a job within an hour, he was amazing. I couldn't fault anything, it was a smooth process. I just wish I had known about the WWTW programme sooner".
"Alex went out of the way to help, really beyond excellent. I was proactive in helping my recovery but Alex and Mike Jackson House really helped."
In January 2018 Walking With The Wounded was one of the first UK charities to receive the Call Of Duty Endowment Seal of Distinction, the standard of excellence in the veterans’ employment sector.

Working in partnership, Walking With The Wounded has developed employment pathways to support ex-servicemen and women into new careers.
