All this week, Stray FM has been taking you behind the scenes at Catterick Garrison's Personnel Recovery Centre.

Today is the final look around Phoenix House which helps sick or injured troops prepare for life on 'civvy street'.

Help for Heroes and the Royal British Legion have made it all possible through fundraising.

Bryn Parry, Chief Executive Officer and co-founder of Help for Heroes, said: "We're delighted that Phoenix House in Catterick is now available in the north where our wounded and their families can access a comprehensive support network and prepare for life outside of the services.

"Help for Heroes are proud to be supporting Phoenix House but it wouldn't be possible without the support from hundreds of thousands of supportive donors. Phoenix House is firm proof of the support the public feels for its Armed Forces and for that we are thankful."

Chris Simpkins, Director General of the Royal British Legion, added: "The help this Personnel Recovery Centre at Catterick will provide is vitally needed for those who have given so much for our country, and the Legion is delighted to be part of it.

"As a charity we have been helping servicemen and women for 90 years and we have a long and deep connection with the garrison at Catterick and with Armed Forces personnel and their families in the area.

"Our support for the Personnel Recovery Programme is a key part of our welfare services and at the very heart of our organisation.

"Wounded, injured and sick service personnel deserve nothing less than the best and the Royal British Legion will continue to support them, and their families, for the rest of their lives."

Mo Usman, General Manager of Phoenix House, explains why extra funding is still needed:
