Walking With The Wounded
Established in 2010, Walking With The Wounded provides vulnerable veterans’ independence through employment.
WWTW recognises the inherent skills of our armed service personnel and wants to compliment these qualities, as well as provide support to transfer their skills into the civilian workplace. We offer assistance through our programmes to those vulnerable veterans who have been physically, mentally or socially disadvantaged by their service and assist them in gaining independence through new long term careers outside of the military. This includes providing support to homeless veterans and veterans in the Criminal Justice System, areas which are too often ignored.
WWTW are proud to have been instrumental in designing and launching this innovative programme within the NHS. Step into Health is the brainchild of Ed Parker, CEO and Co-Founder of Walking With The Wounded, and the Senior Management Team of the Norfolk & Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. The programme provides a formal pathway for veterans and service leavers into sustainable careers within the NHS to which skills acquired in the military are so well suited.
The outcome? Sustainable employment, and independence for them and their families.
