This year at just Financial Planning, we chose to support the charity Walking With The Wounded, who help get veterans back in to work. Two teams went from flatest Norfolk to the hills of the Lake District to take on the Cumbrian Challenge.
We were proud to battle through the heat and the height with both teams finishing. We raised over £4,000 for WWTW which is enough to help get two veterans back in to work.
Walking With The Wounded
Established in 2010, Walking With The Wounded supports a pathway for vulnerable veterans to re-integrate back into society and sustain their independence. At the heart of this journey is employment.
We recognise the inherent skills of our armed service personnel and wants to complement 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 sustaining their independence through new sustainable 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.
The outcome? Sustainable employment, and independence for them and their families.
