How To Get Involved

Not everyone can donate money, but there are many other ways to support HighGround in its mission.

Gardening Volunteers at Headley Court

We need volunteers to help at Headley Court until August 2018.

When the DMRC moves from Headley Court to Stanford Hall we will need volunteers in Nottingham. We expect to have volunteering opportunities at Stanford Hall from April 2018.

Volunteer in the Office

In the office – or even from home! Our office is staffed on a full-time basis by our Development Director and Careers Manager; from the end of 2017 they will be joined by an Operations Manager.

We are always grateful to have support and expertise on a voluntary basis from people with skills in marketing, social media, finance, web design, IT, SharePoint, CRM, strategy and administration.


Charity ball, golf tournament, marathon – if you would like to organise a fundraising event please contact us for our Fundraising Pack. This will give you materials and resources to organise your event and help raise valuable funds for HighGround and its work with servicemen and women.

Be a work experience provider

A vital part of any career change is work experience. It provides insights and real understanding of what will be required from a particular career choice. This is the missing link for so many ex military people when they are looking for employment in civilian life.

At HighGround we recognise the importance of supporting both the provider and the HighGrounder so that everyone gets the maximum out of the experience and the HighGrounder is more employable when he/she completes the work experience than they were when they started.

We have a growing network of work experience providers from estates, farms, parks and gardens, Rivers Trusts, forestry companies, golf and polo clubs and much more all around the UK.
