Walking With The Wounded
Walking With The Wounded (WWTW) was established in 2010 to raise funds to finance the re-training of wounded servicemen and women and in so doing assist them in acquiring the skills and qualifications necessary to find new careers outside the military. Our ability to fundraise effectively ensures we can finance new qualifications, courses and further education through our First Steps Bursary Scheme as well as via organisations and projects; such as The Warrior Programme and The Poppy Factory. This enables the blind, the burn victims, the mentally injured, the amputees and all the other wounded to rebuild their lives and return to the work place and in so doing provide long-term security for themselves and their families. In conjunction with individual fundraising events, Walking With The Wounded also promotes awareness of the charity, our wounded community and the challenges faced by all those living with disability by undertaking high profile expeditions with wounded veterans and serving soldiers that are generously funded by corporate donors. These corporate sponsorships allow private donations such as yours to go exclusively towards the work we do helping re-educate and retrain our injured veterans. Following the success of our previous expeditions to the North Pole in 2011 and Mount Everest in 2012, this year’s expedition, the South Pole Allied Challenge, is our most ambitious yet, and involves three teams of wounded servicemen and women from the United Kingdom, the United States and the Commonwealth embarking on a race to the Geographic South Pole this December. At a time when so many charities are asking for people's generosity, we are hugely grateful for any donations which are made. Please follow our build up to the expedition at www.walkingwiththewounded.co.uk Many thanks for your support.
Combat Stress
Combat Stress is the UK’s leading mental health charity for veterans, providing free specialist clinical treatment and welfare support to ex-servicemen and women across the UK with mental health conditions. We have 6,000 veterans registered with us. We treat conditions including Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), depression and anxiety. We provide a range of free services including short-stay clinical treatment, a specialist PTSD Intensive Treatment Programme, Occupational Therapy, Community and Outreach support and a free 24-hour Helpline. On average it takes 12 years from Service discharge for veterans to contact Combat Stress for help, by which time their condition is often highly complex. For more information visit our website combatstress.org.uk.
Stoll (Sir Oswald Stoll Foundation)
Stoll (Sir Oswald Stoll Foundation) provides homes and support for disabled and vulnerable Veterans. Although our housing is London based, we accept tenants from all over the UK. Our sites are in Hammersmith & Fulham and Hounslow and homes are adapted to the individual needs of our tenants, who are all Ex-Servicemen and women. Help is provided through Support Workers and our Health & Well-Being teams with training and advice, back to work initiatives, social activities and life skills to promote physical and mental well-being.
Lt. Dougie Dalzell MC Memorial Trust
The DDMT supports all active and retired servicemen and women and their families through a variety of grants and also through the provision of facilities, equipment and services for training and education. As a small and family-led charity, our focus is on supporting individual beneficiaries and spending the funds we raise quickly. However, we also back wider projects with a broader welfare reach such as our Soldiers in Mind initiative which provides mental health support service for military personnel and their families who prefer to access help outside of military circles.

WARpaint aims to raise the level of public awareness of service personnel, serving and veterans, who are living with the devastating and life changing effects of war.

It is the brainchild of portrait artist, Caroline de Peyrecave. 

The core of the project is 15 large, life size portraits, painted by Caroline, of soldiers, sailors, aircrew, men and women who served in conflicts that the United Kingdom has been involved in since World War 2. The portraits will be leased for short periods to corporates to raise money for 4 charities who support wounded veterans.

The 4 charities being supported are: 

Walking with the Wounded

Combat Stress

Stoll

Lt Dougie Dalzell MC Memorial Trust

In 2018 the paintings will hang in the new Defence & National Rehabilitation Centre (DNRC), currently under construction at Stanford Hall in the Midlands, where it is intended they act as inspiration and a beacon of hope to casualties of future conflicts

Through Virgin Money Giving, you can support WARpaint and your donations will be quickly processed and passed to the 4 charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.
