What we do

Veterans Outdoors works with veterans and those still serving, harnessing the proven therapeutic benefits of outdoor activity to improve wellbeing. Each personalised programme leads directly to the NHS 5 Steps to Wellbeing: connecting with people, being physically active, learning new skills, giving to others and taking notice of the world around you.

What we offer

Some of our beneficiaries come directly to us, others are referred by GP surgeries, NHS Mental Health services or by some of the dedicated veterans and armed forces health organisations. Everyone we see is assessed when they arrive to determine their personal needs and interests so we can put together a personalised programme for each individual.

About us

We’re an independent charity, working closely with the NHS and other referral bodies. Our team includes veterans and health professionals and many of us have seen, at first hand, both the devastating impact of trauma and the wellbeing, healing effect of outdoor activity. We put our beneficiaries first and are united in our passion for the work we do.
