From wheelchair rugby to walking, craft to cookery - there’s more going on in your community than you may realise. 

We provide an engaging and varied programme of inclusive sporting and social activities in your area. Join in to make connections in your local community, meet other local veterans and their families, and improve your physical and mental wellbeing. And you'll also enjoy some awesome events in great company. 

What’s on offer?

Lots. And with new activities added regularly, there's something for everyone. You could try gym sessions, swimming, archery, boccia, mountain biking, paddleboarding, tennis, walking, cycling and a whole lot more. 

Social activities for you and your family include things like walks, quizzes, arts and crafts, museum visits, cookery and photography. There's lots to discover and enjoy together. 

Weekly virtual get-togethers have given me a social life. I’ve enjoyed walks, kayaking, archery and segway sessions, which were hilarious. We went to rugby games in Edinburgh. That all built up my confidence and social skills again.

Help for Heroes have been there to support me too. We’ve both been able to take part in fun activities and meet with other families. Having that support network has been really important for us both.
