Company Partnerships

Working together, we can support veterans to rebuild their lives

Global brand or independent business, your company and people can help rebuild the lives of those who’ve served and urgently need our support. 

Partnering with us will show your commitment to supporting veterans and empowering them to rebuild their lives. 

Partner with a military charity that delivers value for veterans and for you

Through our employment, mental health and support care coordination services for military veterans, we deliver huge social value. We support veterans into more positive roles, relationships and situations. We work with hundreds of NHS Trusts, police constabularies, charities, public and private sector organisations, and for every £1 invested we deliver at least £13 in economic value from our Employment Programme, and £6 from our Mental Health Programme.

Find experienced talent with unique skills for your business

It can be a challenge for companies to find the experienced talent they need to diversify their workforce and reach their potential. Walking With The Wounded is at the heart of finding new employment opportunities for veterans who are trained in leadership, teamwork, logistics, project management, planning and more. Ex-Forces personnel can be some of the most courageous, loyal and trustworthy people a company can work with.

Business networking opportunities with high profile partners

We also partner with high profile military networks, such as the Armed Forces Covenant and Cobseo, opening up large scale networks to our company partners. We have a range of corporate packages, sponsorship opportunities, fundraising ideas and more. When we work together with our partners, we can change the world.

We’re at the heart of many partnerships dedicated to improving the lives of our ex-forces. We are proud holders of the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme Gold award, and use our status to collaborate, build networks, attract talent and develop new and innovative ways of working.

Focused on delivering better lives for military veterans

Our bold and pioneering spirit has led to many firsts for a military charity, including high profile expeditions, key connections with global challenge events including the Marathon des Sables, and innovative partnerships with businesses, health, care and employment services. To get the best for ex-Forces personnel, reduce duplication and provide more effective services, we regularly partner with other military charities, including Help For Heroes, SSAFA, Combat Stress and RBL.

Because we’re fully focussed on transforming the lives of ex-service personnel, working with us can make a real difference to a company’s Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) investment and Corporate Social Responsibility.

It’s an honour for us to continue working in partnership with WWTW – a fantastic charity, which is providing invaluable support to veterans and their families. The transition to civilian life is a difficult one for so many service leavers and we’re committed to helping the team as best we can.

Sponsorship increases business visibility and positive association

Sponsoring our events, services and programmes can elevate your business profile, connect you to new networks and show your staff and customers your commitment to supporting veterans and social change.

For example, our high-profile challenge events, including The Cumbrian Challenge and Walking Home For Christmas attract huge attention for the event sponsors. With high levels of PR and marketing, high profile individuals and huge audiences, sponsoring a Walking With The Wounded event is a great boost for your brand.

Fundraising for veterans changes lives

We can help your staff, partners and customers support veterans to rebuild their lives, with loads of exciting and original engagement ideas.

We offer access to unique events, networking opportunities and business challenges. From long-distance walks to cycling competitions to abseiling off towers, fundraising for Walking With The Wounded is the perfect way to motivate your staff and demonstrate your support to those who’ve served.

Give unique, non-cash gifts that money can’t buy

Whatever your business, there are so many ways you can help by supporting us with gifts in kind. For example, this could be pro-bono support using your legal or IT expertise. Providing office equipment, or equipment for our challenge events. It could even be one-off prizes for auctions, for example, a behind the scenes tour of a national treasure, exclusive high value products or VIP tickets to a sporting or cultural event.

Your gifts in kind mean we can focus more of our funds directly on our services we know are proven to support those veterans and their families who need the most support.

Jon rang me up to see if I would like to attend an employment webinar being run by DXC Technology. I asked loads of questions, and they asked me for my CV. I had a telephone interview and they offered me a job. That’s all thanks to Jon being on the ball.
