“After the guns have fallen silent, and the din of battle quietened, the real fight begins.”
HRH Prince Henry of Wales
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.
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.
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
