Luke is an Ambassador for Help for Heroes, representing them at charitable and fundraising events and promoting the fantastic work they do. Luke has received a wide range of support from Help for Heroes, most notably through their sports recovery programmes.
Blesma have been there, supporting Luke from day 1. As well as providing equipment and the support needed to access daily activities around the home they have provided numerous opportunities to take part in amputee adapted activities. They have also pushed the boundaries in prosthetic support in the NHS which has benefited Luke and all his amputee colleagues.
It was with the support of SSAFA and their amazing facilities at Norton House in near Headley Court and Fischer House near the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham, that Luke and his wife Sophie were able to keep a semblance of family life going during the extended periods that Luke was away for surgery and rehabilitation.
Luke is a trustee of Flying for Freedom. His two main aims are to push the boundaries of his own capabilities as a microlight pilot through their ever escalating challenges, and to support and enable other wounded, injured or sick (WIS) personnel to realise their own potential through flying with the team.
Luke has been the Veteran Representative for the steering group for the Veteran’s Gateway. This new initiative aims to streamline the process a veteran will go through from first point of contact to receiving appropriate and specific support. The hope is to reach many of those who thus far haven’t come forward by removing barriers for those who find that initial step daunting.
