Recovery in Wales

In Wales, Help for Heroes Community Recovery Team delivers holistic support to veterans and Armed Forces personnel who have been affected by their military service.

Based at our easily-accessible office, a few minutes’ drive from M4 Junction 32, on a major bus route and a short walk from a train station; our expert team offers tailored advice and activities to wounded, injured and sick individuals at every stage of their Recovery Journey.  We also travel across Wales to ensure our services are available within the community at the point of need.

Our One-to-One key workers identify priority areas to improve physical and mental health and wellbeing, as well as helping with practical issues like financial support, housing, relationships and signposting to partner agencies who can work together to develop a pathway to a happier, healthier life with regained purpose.

Sports Recovery sessions take place across communities in Wales.  Activities include swimming, mixed ability rugby, walking football, cricket, pilates, circuits, spin and body pump.

Band of Brother and Sister Fellowship activities take place at monthly hubs in conjunction with the regular sports sessions, providing a sense of camaraderie and a chance to catch up with like-minded people in a relaxed environment. 

We also organise child-friendly activities for veterans and their families to come together and enjoy everything from craft sessions to dolphin spotting, international rugby matches at the Principality Stadium and canal boat trips.

Our experienced Veterans’ Clinical Liaison is a qualified nurse who can provide expert advice and support to individuals with medical needs, delivering advocacy and assistance in accessing health services.

In 2018 our multi-purpose activity room has seen us host successful sessions on Sleep Hygiene and rollout the Help for Heroes’ Pathfinder Experience in Wales.   In 2019 we’re planning nutrition and aromatherapy sessions to improve health and wellbeing, which will be hosted at our Community Recovery Office.
