Following his accident and combined with wear and tear from being a firefighter for 25 years, Peter was faced with having surgery to correct the alignment in his neck.

Wanting to carry on and be on the frontline as a fully operational firefighter and station manager, Peter turned to The Fire Fighters Charity for support.

We spoke to Peter at Marine Court nearing the end of a week on the rehabilitation programme, combining physical activity with support from the Charity’s psychological therapy team.
