About Making Generation R

The lasting impact of the global pandemic has meant that it’s vital we prioritise our mental health and emotional wellbeing. Learning to be resilient can make a big difference to young people and adults that struggle with feelings of anxiety and self-esteem. One of the most effective ways to encourage resilience is through inspiration from others.

That’s why the Making Generation R campaign supports injured veterans to take their inspiring stories about overcoming adversity to schools, frontline workers and military organisations across the UK.

Over 125,000 people have already benefited from a free workshop. Sign up below to inspire resilience.


Through Making Generation R, any teacher, frontline worker or military organisation in the UK can sign up to invite an injured ex-serviceman and woman to visit and, together with a professional facilitator, speak to an audience about overcoming difficulties and becoming resilient.
