Our nominated charity – Turn to Starboard

 

DK Fulfilment are proud to support Turn to Starboard

TTS_Logo_Stacked_2000x1000pxTurn to Starboard uses RYA sailing courses to support Armed Forces personnel, retired and serving, affected by military operations.

Their focus is on re-integration, re-engagement and providing tangible experiences, expert training and career building opportunities all in a supportive and unique environment.

Service personnel who have experienced hostile conditions on deployed operations often have difficulty readjusting to normal life. It can sometimes be difficult  to share these highly stressful experiences and emotions with friends and family.  The instinct can often be to try and protect families and loved ones by not discussing how we feel.

Turn to Starboard makes it easier for those affected by miltary operations share experiences with others who have served in the Forces. By grouping these individuals together, they allow them to begin their journey of readjustment. Read about the real life experience of one beneficiary.

In addition, by providing internationally recognised courses through the Royal Yachting Association, they support their beneficiaries to develop new careers while setting them on a more positive path for their future.

Throughout the year DK Fulfilment staff will be hosting and taking part in a range of fundraising events, to raising money for Turn to Starboard.
