In June, Tony Hulton, Walking With The Wounded's CEO, was featured on the Do One Better Podcast. The discussion covered three core support services provided by the charity: mental health, social work and employment support.

Tony detailed the unique challenges veterans face when transitioning to civilian life. Everyday tasks that civilians take for granted, such as applying for a passport or a rental agreement, can be daunting for those accustomed to the structured life within the military.

WWTW recognises that while many veterans’ transition smoothly, a significant minority encounter difficulties that often manifest 10 to 14 years after leaving the service. These issues can include unemployment, underemployment, debt, and family breakdowns.

Employment is a critical area of focus for WWTW. Veterans possess valuable skills such as leadership, management, and teamwork, making them highly desirable employees. However, challenges can arise years after their service ends, as skills may fade, and confidence may wane.

In this podcast episode, Tony emphasises the importance of ongoing support for veterans in employment, ensuring they can leverage their skills effectively in civilian roles.

Listen to the full episode to learn more about the invaluable work WWTW is doing and how we are making a difference in the lives of those who have served.
