Team Forces Impact Report 2023

Team Forces is committed to improving mental and physical wellbeing in the armed forces and we are proud to announce our third Impact Report which covers activity up to the end of November 2023. 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. 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 third 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.”

The Ulysses Trust is delighted to continue our partnership with Team Forces - and ensure that our cadet forces are given the opportunity to take part in Adventure and Challenge, developing their leadership and teamwork, their mental health and wellbeing - all of which does wonders to create confident, resilient young adults for the future.

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.

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.

AFPST wants to express its deepest gratitude for the incredible support Team Forces has provided to the Armed Forces Para Snowsport Team. Without your unwavering dedication and generosity, we would not be able to offer life-changing journeys to our amazing and inspiring athletes. Your support has made a significant impact in transforming lives and shaping dreams. It has allowed us to create a platform for these extraordinary individuals to showcase their skills and resilience on the snow.

Elizabeth Winfield, Chief Operating Officer AFPST
