It’s not about a ski holiday…

After the guns have fallen silent, and the din of battle quietened, the real fight begins.

Skiing With Heroes is a charity that helps wounded ex-Iraq and Afghanistan campaign soldiers back into employment through a ski-based support, mentoring, introduction and induction programme. Our work enables these Veterans to:

Recover their confidence
Re-enter employment
Reclaim their lives

Paralympic sport is a proven, potent medium for confidence-building, and skiing levels the odds between the ‘able’ and ‘disabled’ as few sports can. As has been shown to great effect during our inaugural 2013 and 2014 seasons, injured Veterans have used the Skiing with Heroes programme to help transfom their lives.

Using two principal events per year – The Ski Week each March, and the new-for-2015 Business Challenge in January – together with various one-off fund-raisers, we are rapidly expanding our ongoing help platforms. In doing so, Skiing With Heroes aims to provide lasting solutions for increasing numbers of Veterans.

I can really hardly believe that I have skied. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

You have allowed me to put some demons to bed and let me achieve a dream I NEVER thought might become a reality…

KJ (Veteran)

The physical benefit of these activities is clear… Sit‐Skiing has increased my core strength to such an extent that I can now do sit ups for the first time in 11 months.”

Next week the interviews take place for the Ski Week 2016 veterans. If you have been shortlisted... DON'T WORRY too much, it's a relaxed interview in a private house, in the dining room - there will be 3 to 5 people in the room with you and we are all very friendly.
There are no trick questions, its really a matter of seeing whether our resources will match your requirements...
There are biscuits too!
Really looking forward to meeting all the interviewees...
Here's a picture to make you smile ;)
Have a great weekend

Dean HawkinsLike Ben I was a vet last year, I fact, I was the 'Grandad' and went to the "interview" slightly nervous. That's not a bad thing as we Military know....Test Conditions !!! But as soon as that door opens its more like s welcome home. Cheerful, bright smiley and friendly faces waiting to meet you at last. The group are so at ease and want to know about you .... Warts n all!! Don't worry about what to say, just have your say, it's what they want. No decision at the end, no farewells, just some words of thanks and we'll be in touch. good luck and if you are offered the chance to experience SWH week, then enjoy. Deano
