OUR WOUNDED HEROES NEED YOU NOW MORE THAN EVER. PLEASE HELP US KEEP OUR PROMISE TO THEM
It was just thirteen years ago that we promised to be here for wounded veterans, for life, no matter what. So, it’s hard to admit that this year, due to the pandemic, we’re struggling.
Coronavirus has had a devastating impact on the lives of wounded veterans and their families. We’re doing everything we can to protect our life-changing services but, at a time when our heroes need us more than ever, our future is at serious risk. Please help us keep our promise to them.
Our income is falling dramatically, and we urgently need your help
A massive 97 per cent of our funding comes from the generosity of the British public, and a huge portion of that is raised through big events, like marathons or other challenges which have had to be cancelled. On top of this, we’re expecting a 30 per cent reduction in our regular income over the coming years, due to recession.
This puts our future at serious risk
We’ve supported vulnerable veterans and their families throughout lockdown, but now, with up to 90 team members facing redundancy due to financial pressures and three of our recovery centres closing for the foreseeable future, it’s hard to see how we can continue providing that support.
Due to the pandemic, the number of veterans and service personnel struggling with their mental and physical health has risen by 33 per cent. And this is based on those who have come forward for support. Many more may still be suffering in silence.
