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 Management Programme

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.


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

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.


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

Pain Management Programme

We are funding the first veteran centred Pain Management Programme in the UK. Pain management is one of the biggest barriers to employment for many veterans

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. In 2017 we were once again succesful with our grant application.

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.

Together with Walking with the Wounded we have set up The Wounded Veterans’ Fund and this fund has been supported by the BGC charity day.  

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
I do believe that my recovery has begun
