Walking with The Wounded’s core purpose is to support vulnerable veterans so they are a valued member of society and sustain their independence post military service, providing long-term security for themselves and their families. We have created a number of access points to identify veterans and their families and their range of needs, including those that are in temporary accommodation or sofa surfing, those in Police Custody, those with mental health issues as well as those requiring employment support.

Waterloo Uncovered (WU) is a ground-breaking charity which uses a world class archaeological project exploring the Waterloo Battlefield in Belgium to support veterans and serving personnel in their recovery and health, wellbeing, transition, education and employment. The aims of the charity, as set out in the articles, are to assist veterans and serving personnel by any means possible, to give veterans
the opportunity to participate in the archaeological study of sites of military interest, to provide education and vocational skills training to the public generally, and veterans specially, and to advance the education of the public through archaeology.
Waterloo Uncovered runs a nine-month Veteran Support Programme, aimed at giving veterans (and
serving personnel) from all corners of the United Kingdom and all parts of the Armed Forces a
comprehensive experience of Battlefield Archaeology. This experience brings numerous benefits, both in
supporting the recovery from physical and mental injuries, and in providing the opportunity to explore
archaeology as a possible professional, academic or casual interest in civilian life. The programme is supported throughout by archaeologists, and by professionals and enthusiasts from related disciplines, as well as by a team of Wellbeing professionals who are on hand to ensure that the programme is of maximum value to each participant.
WAY is the only national charity in the UK for people aged 50 or under when their partner died. It’s a peer-to-peer support group run by a network of volunteers who have been bereaved at a young age themselves, so they understand exactly what other members are going through.
WAY was founded in 1997 and now has more than 2,800 members across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. WAY aims to provide peer-to-peer emotional and practical support to young widowed men and women – married or not, with or without children, whatever their sexual orientation – as they adjust to life after the death of their partner.
WAY offers a unique peer-to-peer support network to anyone who has lost their partner at a young age. We know that talking to and socialising with others who have been through a similar experience can be an enormous help when you are trying to rebuild your life after bereavement.
If you were bereaved when you were aged 50 or under, married or not, with or without children, whatever your sexual orientation, race or religion – you are welcome to join WAY.
