We support any serving man or woman who is wounded, injured or sick and any veteran of any age with a disability, illness or infirmity; whatever the cause and whenever it arose. Any serving or former member of The Royal Navy, The Royal Marines, The British Army, The Royal Air Force and The Merchant Navy, both Regular and Reserve Forces, may be eligible for our help.
Our motto ‘From Comradeship To Challenge’ illustrates the variety and breadth of the support we offer. Some of our activities provide a physical challenge and the opportunity to develop self-confidence, others are of a more social nature aimed at fostering camaraderie and friendship; many offer both challenge and comradeship. Each of our events and activities is intended to restore confidence, enhance wellbeing, boost morale and improve the chances of the service man or woman and their family enjoying a normal, if not better, life.
The unique aspect of our work is the way we mix serving personnel with veterans of all ages, from WWII to the present day; like-minded people with shared experiences, but from different backgrounds, services and regiments. Our oldest beneficiary is 105 years old, our youngest is in their early 20s. Activities are carefully tailored to the individual needs of beneficiaries of different ages, service experiences, personal circumstances and degree of physical or mental injury or disability.
We invite regimental and military associations, veterans’ organisations, Personnel Recovery Centres/Units, rehab troops and other service charities to nominate members or service users for our events.
