We work hard to increase awareness of how we can help injured Servicemen. Our strong relationships with Defence Recovery Capability and the Personnel Recovery Units around the UK allow us to reach more people who haven’t yet heard of us and don’t yet know how we can help them.
The Foundation introduces Servicemen to what we do through an initial 1 Day Familiarisation Event. These are held at golf clubs close to each PRU with the aim of introducing potential new members to the game and encouraging them to attend our 3 Day Golf Skills and Employment Training Events.
Our 3 Day Events allow our attendees to fully explore how golf can help them on the road to recovery, and even provide employment. Here, Servicemen receive not only comprehensive golf tuition from our accredited training professionals, but career advice and guidance from industry professionals. Talks have been given by green keepers, golf course managers and catering personnel to name but a few.
The Foundation’s main aim is to offer work experience placements to our members. We’re committed to finding roles to fit the skills and knowledge of our members and helping them pursue a meaningful career in the golf industry. Employment is key to what we do, building self-esteem and confidence in our members and supporting their goal of getting back On Course.
