Team Forces Impact Report 2022

Team Forces is committed to improving mental and physical wellbeing in the armed forces and we are proud to announce our second Impact Report which covers activity up to the end of November 2022. Throughout this time we have supported a diverse portfolio of armed forces sports organisations and individuals on expeditions, challenges and adventurous activities.

Our Impact Report illustrates what we have done to deliver positive social value on behalf of our sponsors and donors and we are pleased to report that we have increased the number of social impact projects by around 40% since our first report last year. Of particular note, is the support provided to veterans who have been through a life changing injury, illness or trauma. We have supported activities that have helped to rebuild lives by providing the inspirational goals that help them move beyond their disability, regain confidence and self-esteem and recapture their zest for life.

CEO, Major General Lamont Kirkland said: “I am delighted to share our second Impact Report which shows the huge variety of support and the positive effect Team Forces grants help enable. Our huge thanks goes to all our sponsors and donors for their investment in our programme which allows our trustees to deliver positive social value on your behalf.”

For over a decade we have been supported through Team Forces and this recent and challenging year has been no exception. From supporting our Gala Dinners to seeking lead sponsors for our first ever AFPST competition their support has been invaluable and made a significant impact. This year we have also seen direct support to many of our challenge events that inspire beyond the charity and demonstrate just what is possible after injury. These endeavours have generated the critical funds we require and have captured the hearts of all our supporters

Elizabeth Winfield, Chief Operating Officer AFPST

I have faced many challenges in my life. I could not have overcome them without the support of my family, my friends, my colleagues and sport

Corie Mapp, ex-Guardsman and Para Bobsleigh Athlete

The Trust is delighted to be working with Team Forces, as we have so much common ground. I see great opportunity for both organisations that will undoubtedly benefit a range of young people – particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds

Air Vice Marshal Nick Kurth, Chairman of the Ulysses Trust

We are really grateful for the grant from Team Forces which will help us offer invaluable support to many members of the Armed Forces. Every single penny will go to changing people’s lives – providing them with the tools to manage their mental wellbeing and move their lives forward

Kelda Wood MBE, Founder of Climbing Out

Our Mission is to promote excellence and help the forces’ sporting talent to succeed by supporting grassroots activity, as well as encouraging and assisting our elite athletes to compete at the highest level. We also support those who are recovering from wounds or illness to take part in events which help them move beyond their disability, regain confidence and recapture their zest for life. Since we started in 2011 the trustees have donated over £10m to this cause and we have an ongoing and exciting programme of support planned for the future.
