WWTW Programmes

Walking With The Wounded ‘WWTW’ deliver employment, mental health, care coordination and volunteering programmes in collaboration with the NHS to get those who served, and their families, whether mentally, socially or physically wounded, back on their feet and making a positive contribution once more. Why? Because those who served, deserve.

 

We do four things: employment, mental health, care coordination and volunteering which are saving jobs, homes, relationships and lives for the veterans who are struggling since leaving the military.

 

We are also regenerating communities – such as buying a run-down street in Manchester for £1 as part of BBC DIY SOS’s biggest-ever-build creating ‘Veterans Street’, including a new office for us to support veterans across the North West. Other staff are located throughout the UK and work in collaboration with other agencies. We work in partnership with the NHS, local agencies, police custody suites, other veteran charities, and local authorities.

 

Our support activities include:


-         121 mental health therapy (CBT/EMDR) through a network of accredited therapists - allocating a therapist within an average of 7 days and 4 miles.

-         121 Employment Support using IPS methodology.

-         Provision of accommodation and support with the development and navigation of veteran-friendly accommodation pathways

-         Navigation of specialist services, such as alcohol addiction services

-         Specialist support for those referred via police custody to lead a crime-free life

-         Family support for those who are suffering as a result of their partners' needs

 

For the small but significant minority of ex-service men and women who do not have a successful transition to civilian life, WWTW provides high-intensity support to help them regain their independence and thrive. 


We Have Been Supporting Amazing People

Walking with the Wounded offers support to veterans looking to get back into employment. We have supported many veterans into employment as can be seen in our case studies. Veterans charities like Help for heroes offer similar services.
