Did you know that in the last 20 years, almost 40,000 men and women have had to leave the Armed Forces due to injury or illness? Every day, this number grows, with an average of seven people being medically discharged everyday since drawdown from Afghanistan.
Seventy percent say their transition to civilian life was a negative experience.* That’s why we have created our 40,000 Strong model force to help show the true scale of those who have put their lives on the line for us.
With your help, we can fight to fix the gaps, improve the transition process for all wounded veterans and provide vital support to those already wounded. We’re calling on the Government to commission an independent review into the MoD’s medical discharge process, and specifically the support available to service personnel as they transition.
We believe every wounded veteran is entitled to receive the help they need. Join our mission today to help all wounded veterans stand strong. Donate to own your own boxed figure, or sign up to hold your own 40,000 Strong event so we can still be here to keep fighting.
