Scuba diving rehabilitation charity Deptherapy has been shortlisted as a Finalist for the U.K.’s 2018 Soldiering On Awards.

Deptherapy & Deptherapy Education is shortlisted in the Healthcare & Rehabilitation category. Sponsored by Redwood Technologies Group, this award will be given “in recognition of a person or team who have made a major contribution in the treatment of ill health or injury, or provided exceptional skill and commitment to healthcare treatment, recovery and rehabilitation of serving and former members of the Armed Forces Community.”

The Soldiering On Awards recognise the outstanding achievements of those who have served their country, and the diverse people and groups who work together in support of the British Armed Forces Community. The awards aim to encourage support for this community by celebrating the achievements of the people, teams and businesses within it.

An independent panel of judges will decide on the final recipients of the awards following a Finalists Reception at the House of Lords in February, and the awards will be announced at a black tie dinner on April 20th, 2018.

Founder and Chairman of Deptherapy & Deptherapy Education Richard Cullen said:

“Being a finalist in the Soldiering on Awards is a huge boost for the charity. I hope this recognition of our work will attract sponsorship from the private sector to ensure our long-term plans are sustainable. We are competing against three other exceptional finalists in our category and we wish everyone involved the greatest success. It is the ‘troops’ we work with that make Deptherapy special and we are privileged to help their rehabilitation.”
