Meet The Team
Meet Our Trustees
Behind every charity there is a Board of Trustees. These Trustees are the unpaid – and often unsung – heroes of the charity sector. Our Trustees are so passionate about supporting the military community, that they voluntarily give up their own time to oversee the running of The Ripple Pond. They all work incredibly hard, making hugely important decisions about how we operate, and about the services that we provide to our Members. Theirs is a vital role, and we wouldn’t be where we are without them.
Without external grants, support and donations, we would not be able to provide the Armed Forces community with our unique support and information services.
It is down to the generosity of our funders below that we are able to carry on helping the military families who need us most. Thank you to each and every one of you, for helping us to change lives.
The Veterans’ Foundation is one of the country’s fastest-growing military charities, and takes great pride working with hundreds of smaller charities and charitable organisations across UK who share the same passion: to provide a better life for Armed Forces families in need.
The Veterans’ Foundation helps it’s partner organisations by supporting them to deliver life-changing projects, through their grant award scheme.
We are incredibly honoured not only to have received the very generous support of The Veterans’ Foundation, but also to feature as part of the charity’s ‘Care, Support & Wellbeing’ Hub
The Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust supports the Armed Forces Covenant, by delivering funding programmes that create real change to Armed Forces communities across the UK.

The trust awards funding to programmes designed to help improve quality of life for the Armed Forces community, and we are an extremely proud recipient of this support
The National Lottery Community Fund is the largest funder of community activity in the UK. The fund supports people and communities to prosper and thrive, and awards more than £500 million to charities, community and voluntary groups each year.
