Welcome to HighGround
We are a young charity, formed to assist in the transition from military to civilian life
Our vision is to be the leading organisation for the provision of land-based opportunities for all ex-military personnel and Reservists.
Service in the Armed Forces exposes personnel to working and living outdoors. The land-based employment sector offers an ever-increasing variety of opportunities for Service Leavers, Reservists and Veterans to use their transferable skills learned in the military to pursue jobs, careers and vocational opportunities and HighGround provides advice and Rural Weeks towards employment and fulfilment in civilian life.We are also proud to be providing a Horticultural Therapy service for patients at the Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre at Headley Court.

Careers Manager Says Farewell
Our Careers Manager, Sami Choudhury, has finished his last day today with HighGround. Sad to see him go but we wish him all the best with his new role with the Poppy Factory.
Thank you for everything you have done for the charity and its HighGrounders, Sami.
Watch here to see HighGround in action – John Macleod is an inspiration and the perfect illustration of how we help those who have served to find Life beyond the miltary – outdoors.
