Skihabilitation

The ongoing support this charity provides is like no other, a unique distinction between other charity’s that make this charity the one for me.

In short they resurrect broken souls and broken servicemen and give them life support.I do believe that my recovery has begun.

I just wanted to write to you to say. I got the job !!!! I can’t believe I’m back working again. This is massive for me.

Pain Clinic

Today I picked up my hubby who seemed even more closer to the man that I married 20 years ago. You cannot imagine the
wonderful feeling it is to hear your loved one become energetic and compassionate and funny once again.

Mentoring

This week has been a fresh start. I have laughed so much and really improved my skiing. It has also allowed me time to look to the future and put in place some goals to help me through the times ahead

Skiing

Paralympic sport is a proven, potent medium for confidence-building.  Adaptive skiing enables the “disabled” to level with the “able” in a way that few other sports can.  As one of our injured veterans puts it“With my walking stick, I’m an invalid, but in skis, I’m just another person.”     SWV has so far helped almost 100 veterans to transform their lives.

Mentoring

Following the Ski Week, all SWV veterans are offered individual mentoring support. The mentor, who has taken part in SWV’s mentor training scheme, may offer help with retraining, career change, setting up a business, or returning to employment. At each step, the mentor’s objective is to work towards a secure and fulfilling future for the veteran.

Employment

Since we started our Employment Programme we have successfully found meaningful employment and training for 78% of the veterans that requested it.

Pain Clinic

Together with King Edward VII Hospital we are funding the first veteran centred Pain Management Clinic in the UK. Pain management is one of the biggest barriers to employment for many veterans

Ski Buddies

Each year SWV recruits Ski Buddies of all ages to attend the ski habilitation week as support to the veterans, to raise wider  awareness of the charity’s programme  and to fund raise. Many of our buddies remain close to  the charity and our buddies’ network goes from strength to strength each year.

SWV submitted a proposal to the LIBOR fund, and was granted £588,000 to help fund their Pain Management Programme, in conjunction with the King Edward VII Hospital in London.

With further contributions from BACIT and all of our amazing fundraisers, the charity is so pleased to help more wounded veterans, both with physical and hidden wounds, year on year.

In addition, the Royal Foundation has donated money to sponsor some of the veteran teams on our Business Challenge and on the Ski Week.

Fundraise for us!

Supporting Wounded Veterans relies entirely on donations and contributions for the organisation to thrive. This can be done by sponsoring individuals, events, or projects and in a variety of different ways.

I am so very very grateful for all that you and your team did for me (and my wife). I am still smiling
which is such a change for me. I am starting to feel happiness which has been absent for far too long
now.
