Helping our heroes Battle Back through adaptive sport and adventure training
Help for Heroes is a proud founder partner of the Battle Back programme, a UK Military initiative funded by Help for Heroes. Battle Back uses Adaptive Adventure Training and Sports Rehabilitation to help seriously wounded Service personnel gain independence and confidence to focus on what they can achieve, rather than what they can’t.
To date Help for Heroes have provided £1.5m to the programme which has supported 1,500 wounded, injured and sick individuals through activities such as sailing, swimming, cycling or water-skiing, and 80 individuals at an elite level across all summer and winter Paralympic sports.
Battle Back and Help for Heroes also have close links with the British Paralympic Association and work to identify wounded personnel who show a talent for a particular sport and may benefit from inclusion in Paralympic Development programmes.
