MK Dons SET are excited to launch a new, innovative and unique project with the Armed Forces to promote awareness and to support those suffering from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and life changing injury.
The programme will offer sports activities, including football and multi-sports, support groups, advice and sports and workplace qualification opportunities aimed to attract current and ex- military personnel.
This programme will sit within existing SET provision but will also offer specific courses and sessions to individuals and groups with the focus on PTSD and life changing injury. The initiative is also supported by MK Council and a number of PTSD support groups.
MK Dons SET will be celebrating the launch of this exciting new programme during half-time of Saturday's Sky Bet League Two fixture with Lincoln City at Stadium MK. In a break from tradition, the SET will combine the annual Armed Forces parade with the Ability Counts parade to show this partnership working for the first time.
Joining the MK Dons SET Disability teams and Armed Forces in Saturday’s parade are supporters from Lincoln City and players from guest disability teams from Feltham Bees, Everett Rovers, Herts Youth Inclusion, The Wots Up Warriors, Risborough Rangers, Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association, Suffolk FA and Bedwell Rangers.
