Martin Colclough, Head of Sports Recovery, Help for Heroes
Martin joined Help for Heroes in May 2011 having served in the Army as a Junior Soldier from the age of 16, firstly in the Parachute Regiment and latterly in the Royal Army Physical Training Corps (RAPTC). During his military career Martin developed a keen interest in rehabilitation and Paralympic sport, which led him to take a career break as the Senior Paralympic Performance Manager at UK Athletics during 2006/7.
In 2008 Martin helped establish the MOD's Battle Back Programme at Headley Court, a founding partner of which was Help for Heroes. Martin’s role in the Charity, as Head of Sports Recovery, is to maintain their position as the leading provider of adaptive sport and adventurous training opportunities - through the Battle Back Programme - to wounded, injured and sick personnel to help maintain an active and independent lifestyle and to participate in competitive sport and through the delivery of vocational training courses. Much of this work involves exploiting existing opportunities and developing innovative programs with key partners such as the British Paralympic Association and National Governing Bodies for sport.
