We are part of the Battle Back programme and sports recovery. We support Help for Heroes Rolling Recovery Programme and offer additional vocational support.
Our objectives are:

a. To introduce and increase participation at the sports recovery event and to allow WIS personnel to take their first step, without committing to a full season.
b. Provide new team members for next season or give someone an exciting ride in a racing powerboat. This will increase our numbers further and promote our inclusion initiative whilst enabling transition.
c. Provide RYA courses – provided for individuals interested in Powerboats. RYA PB2, Intermediate & Advanced, Safety Boat and VHF Radio.
d. Provide opportunities for those not wishing to compete, but wish to participate in shore support, maintenance, National Race Support, scrutineering and photography.

Our aims are to develop, inspire and challenge Team Members during this demanding and difficult time transitioning from the Armed Forces, in a secure environment supported by volunteers with service backgrounds including its own WIS personnel and veterans. The project prides itself on the same values and goals to develop personal and team development post injury in the Armed Forces.

Our overarching objectives are to: Inspire, Develop and Challenge.

Tom Harrison House is a Liverpool-based addiction recovery centre for military veterans, reservists, emergency services personnel, and their families. The abstinence-based, 12-week recovery programme provides support via a bespoke model which aims to treat addiction within the context of those who have a history of military service – with emphasis placed on the role of co-occurring trauma, safety, confidentiality, and camaraderie, as well as reintegration into “civilian” communities.

The project is framed as a community of veterans who possess shared experiences, perspectives, resources and potential blocks to recovery, and who also share the ability to overcome their issues through a highly structured and intensive programme, and with the mutual support of the group. We work to help our veteran clients to make strides toward improving their mental, physical and emotional health, and to regain the sense of community and camaraderie that they had previously experienced during their active service.

The project is framed as a community of veterans who possess shared experiences, perspectives, resources and potential blocks to recovery, and who also share the ability to overcome their issues through a highly structured and intensive programme, and with the mutual support of the group.

Programme elements are diverse and are designed to best reflect the needs of ex-military personnel – the weekly timetable includes physical training sessions, nutrition groups, equine therapy, 5-a-side football, motivational speaker sessions, family sessions, and an art/choir group. Alongside these activities are more traditional elements such as group therapy and personal assignment work. The programme also includes Moral Reconation Therapy (MRT) and Seeking Safety groups each week – evidence-based methods that are found to be effective in veteran-specific rehabilitation centres in the USA.

Accommodation is provided for the duration of the programme. Support staff can also assist clients with associated issues, which may include medical issues, move-on housing, benefit entitlements, etc.
