Story

Dave served in Afghanistan but struggled mentally on leaving the Army. He flitted from job to job before a breakdown. He was referred to Walking With The Wounded by the NHS and the employment team supported him back into a sustainable job that made the most of his significant skills, generating tens of thousands of pounds of savings for his employer on his first project, and enabling him to support his family once more. The energy industry employs a huge number of ex-military and there is the potential for many more service leavers to plug the skills gap emerging as the sector grows significantly in the coming years. So it is right that we give back and support our men and women who get don't transition successfully and who get caught in a downward spiral. With employment and mental health support they can make a positive contribution once more. Every £86 funds a 1-2-1 mental health session for a veteran or a family member that can save a life. THANK YOU for your generosity.
