Our purpose is to house ex-service personnel who have found themselves homeless. However, in most cases you will find that the individual has become homeless because of a situation or area in their life that has become negative. The support offered while living here is hoped to address this and give the individual the opportunity to turn themselves around within the security of being housed, understood and listened to.

Sporting Force was established to help ex-service men and women make the transition from a life in the military to life as a civilian through social engagement, participation in sport, voluntary placements, training and qualifications into a variety of jobs in the sports and leisure industry. Life in the military is an active life and by working with sports organisations we can offer opportunities that appeal, ignite a passion and help create a new life outside of the services. All the opportunities we offer are inclusive and can be adapted to meet the needs of our disabled veterans. Our veteran centric approach ensures that sports qualifications and employment are successful and relevant to the beneficiary.

We’re constantly adapting our approach to best suit the needs of those who come to us for support. We provide the following programmes:
Therapy – bespoke activities and requires the careful combination of medical practitioner, equine expert, the individual and our horses.

Learning – projects under this programme assist both adults and children. They focus on developing life skills, values and building confidence and character.

Rehabilitation – deliver support to those rehabilitating from a range of issues. Current projects are focussing on addictions (drugs, alcohol and gambling) dependency, crime and behavioural issues.

Recovery – these programmes support those in recovery from anxiety and depression, grief, domestic abuse and isolation issues. The demand to support this latter group has significantly increased as a result of Covid-19.

Sport and Recreation – We support active lifestyles and the benefits they have on health and well-being. Therefore we make our equine centres affordable to all who wish to use them. We support the NHS in their delivery of a holistic approach to health and well being and the social prescribing of activities.

Firm Base – This programme supports our equine centres which provide the charity with a firm base from which to operate. The centres become vital welfare hubs which link together many families coping with isolation and welcome newcomers to the communities.

Virtual Equestrian Centre – thanks to the generous support of Sport England, Tedworth Equestrian’s ‘Virtual Equestrian Centre’ initiative uses a virtual platform to tackle inequality of opportunity and participation in equestrian activity. We aim to break down barriers, improve accessibility and work toward the goal of enhancing the wellbeing of the Armed Forces Community and the local communities in which the Armed Forces are based. The platform includes interactive zoom sessions and pre-recorded video content, tailored to the demands of equestrianism, and will be accessible to everyone online.

Equine Therapy Courses – thanks to funding from the Wiltshire Community Foundation and The Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust, The Armed Forces Equine Charity will work with Warrior Equine and Horseback UK to deliver four new equine therapy courses in 2021 that will help 40 people who are facing severe mental and physical health challenges. Attendees will work with the horses loose in a round-pen, building trust with the animals through body language, emotional control and stress management – all vital skills that can be translated into everyday life.
Veterans Polo – thanks to the generous 2 year Grant granted in May 2019 by The Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust and co-funded by Tedworth Equestrian, the Veterans Polo Project aims to foster a sense of belonging among the veterans community. Delivered by Tedworth Park Polo Club, memberships range from social to corporate, accommodating all abilities and ambitions.
