How could your ACF support WHFC?

Walking Home For Christmas is Walking With The Wounded's annual walking challenge to raise funds for those who served and need mental health care - people who face an added battle against social isolation thanks to COVID-19.

This year the Army Cadets are collectively supporting the campaign and calling on detachments across the country to get involved in what can be a covid-compliant event in small groups with the right precautions.

Walk somewhere important to you, the more creative the better - between war memorials, spell out a message with Strava Art or hand-deliver a present, to raise funds and local publicity. Please sign up below to receive your free materials and enjoy the challenge.

How your money helps

The money you raise will be used by Walking With The Wounded to support ex-military in need of mental health care including through work with its principal partner the NHS. Our programmes have been independently reviewed twice - showing that our therapy has a lasting impact, empowering our beneficiaries to thrive once more.

Every £75 raised can fund a 1-2-1 face-to-face or online therapy session for a veteran or family member - with a therapist allocated within a week.

How it works - it couldn't be easier!
