A Veterans’ Foundation grant will help fund camping retreats in the Scottish Highlands to help veterans struggling with mental and physical disabilities.
The focus of the £30k award will be a new vehicle, fitted with adaptations that will enable access to free and all-inclusive breaks as part of Outpost Charity’s Veterans Camp program.
Through this flagship initiative, Outpost Charity supports veterans suffering with mental health illness, physical disabilities and struggling with social isolation.
“This Veterans’ Foundation grant will provide the foundation for our next steps within the Veterans Camp program, with accessibility for Veterans with disabilities and limitations, which until now has not been possible,” said Kathryn Hindle, Trustee at Outpost Charity.
In addition, the grant will assist in other areas, including delivering necessity support such as the provision of food and utilities to those experiencing financial hardship.
“Everyone at Outpost Charity is sincerely thankful to the Veterans’ Foundation and to all who have taken part in the Veterans’ Lottery. Each and every one of you are helping us build a better tomorrow for our Armed Forces Community,” added Kathryn.
“This funding will not only provide huge impact for our beneficiaries but will help Outpost Charity move that one step further in reaching our aims for the future. Thank you to you all.”
