I'm wounded, supporting our wounded. Are you with me?
We have formed a team from Military People who support Service Leavers and Veterans gain sustainable employment and will be taking on the Cumbrian Challenge - a big old day hauling ourselves around the Lake District alongside teams of veterans who are getting their lives back on track thanks to Walking With The Wounded.
My ask is quite simple. Please dig deep, or sign up a team to take us on.
Why? Well it is personal to me and the team at Military People. The majority of people leaving the military, transition without any issue, but there is a growing minority for whom it isn't so easy. I am one of those people having been medically discharged from the career I loved in the Army after 25 years with PTSD in 2015. I want to help break the stigma associated with this invisible life altering disease and raise awareness, acceptance and loads of money to support those who are most in need of literally saving there's and there families lives.
Walking With The Wounded support the veterans who are struggling with their mental health, who are hard to reach, socially isolated, homeless, in police custody... men and women with little to look forward to but who want to get back into society and employment – which is at the heart of what we do.
Please help me and my team hit our £2k target. Every £675 can enable a veteran to access 1-2-1 private mental health therapy within an average of 4 days of referral. Imagine that.
Thank you so much in advance for your support.
