As the Walking With The Wounded team launch their most ambitious challenge yet, the expedition to the South Pole, we at RBLI would like to wish Ibrar, Kate, Duncan, Guy and Prince Harry the very best of luck. We look forward to the announcement that Team UK is the first to arrive and waiting to welcome Team US and Team Commonwealth.
Whilst one of the aims of these expeditions is to demonstrate how Armed Forces personnel who experience life changing injuries overcome the most significant of challenges to achieve great things, the money raised by them and what this supports other individuals to achieve is none the less significant. No one is more aware of this than RBLI. We are extremely grateful for the support we receive from Walking With The Wounded for our LifeWorks programme. This provides assessment and training for individuals who are leaving the Armed Forces through medical discharge as well as veterans who may have been medically discharged some time ago but have found it difficult to achieve a successful transition into civilian employment. This year over 200 individuals will benefit from LifeWorks support ; most of them will go into work or engage with further training to improve their employment potential.
RBLI wishes all the teams luck. We wish Team UK success and we look forward to continuing our partnership with Walking With The Wounded to support even more wounded and injured individuals in their transition from Military to Civilian life.
