About Us

ESTABLISHED IN 2012

We are a UK based charity that supports veterans who were physically wounded or injured during their time in service, or suffered PTSD as a result of their service.  Our veterans are battling with both physical and mental injuries that have proved life-changing and, in many cases, shattering.
We help our veterans rebuild their futures through a unique, specially designed, ski-based development programme. Every year we provide a carefully selected group of medically discharged military personnel with seven days “skihabilitation” in the Swiss resort of Klosters, which enables them to regain their confidence and embark up a new path to fitness and wellbeing.
Once back in the UK, our veterans join a mentoring and job-finding programme that supports them into re-training and employment.  Our ultimate aim is to help veterans re-integrate into society, ensuring long-term stability for themselves and their families.
