Helping Veterans to improve their Mental Wellbeing
A multi-award-winning organisation based on a 124-acre farm in the Tamar Valley, Cornwall
Battling On Presented with E2 Media Award of Excellence
We are proud to announce that we have been awarded the E2 Media Award of Excellence. Journalists selected Battling On to receive the award for our work over the past 12 months. Ossie Glover, Director at Battling On, was delighted to receive the award.
"The past year, 2020, and COVID-19, had a huge impact on Battling On, given the number of isolated veterans who were undergoing severe mental health issues. It became clear that, through working together as a team, not only did we manage to help and support many of the veterans, but we now have veterans supporting each other through camaraderie and a sense of belonging. We continue to grow and welcome any veteran who feels isolated, or just seeking support to contact us."
Director, Battling On
Our Thanks to Devon and Cornwall Community Foundations

Welcome to Battling On
The courage and devotion of our forces is recognised without doubt. However, it has also been acknowledged that some service personnel find it difficult to settle back into civilian life after leaving the forces.
Using eco based interventions, a variety of indoor and outdoor activities and peer camaraderie, Battling On supports military veterans by providing a safe, empathetic and non-judgmental environment. We host a number of activities predominantly designed and led by veterans, operating onsite at Merryhue Farm on Thursdays and Fridays.
Armed Forces Covenant
Batting On commit to honour the Armed Forces Covenant and support the Armed Forces Community. We recognise the value Serving Personnel, Cadets, Veterans, and military families contribute to our business and our country.
