The Military charity Help for Heroes has announced two new grants this week to support our work at Turn to Starboard.
The funds will provide individual support to Veterans and their families taking part in Turn to Starboard courses including Yacht Master, Cruising Instructor, Day Skipper and Family courses.
Additional funds will support the running costs of two key positions for up to one year, both of which have been filled by wounded Veterans who have transitioned to civvy street.
Our CEO Shaun Pascoe has been through the rehabilitation process himself and so knows first-hand just how powerful being out on the water can be;
“Learning new skills, achieving qualifications, forging new friendships and experiencing adventure, that’s what we offer and it’s incredibly powerful in aiding recovery. This funding from Help for Heroes will allow us to increase the amount of weeks on offer and ultimately ensure more of our beneficiaries have access to the benefits of being out on the water.”
