Combat Stress is the UK’s leading veterans’ mental health charity treating a range of mental health conditions including PTSD, depression and anxiety.
Mental health issues can affect ex-servicemen and women of all ages. Right now, they have more than 6,000 veterans registered with them for support. They are a vital lifeline for those veterans, and their families.
The treatment and support services are always free of charge for veterans. They are Care Quality Commission (CQC) registered and the NHS England PTSD specialist treatment provider for veterans.
They have a vision that all veterans will be able to live free from the harmful effects of psychological injuries.
Their mission is to provide timely, effective clinical treatment and support to veterans with psychological injuries.
They spend £15 million a year delivering unique ranges of specialist treatment and support. Everything they do is free for veterans.
The Royal Parks consist of Hyde Park, St James’s Park, Regents Park, Brompton Cemetery, Richmond Park, Bushy Park and Greenwich Park.
We have been involved in a project with them and the Royal Parks Guild since 2013 called The Royal Parks and the Great War.
This project shows how the parks were involved during WW1 from hospitals, airfields to administration offices and even handling parcels and post to and from the Front Line. We are proud to have been associated with this project and you can read more here:
IWM is unique in its coverage of conflicts, especially those involving Britain and the Commonwealth, from the First World War to the present day. They seek to provide for, and to encourage, the study and understanding of the history of modern war and ‘wartime experience’. They are proud to be regarded as essential sights of London, Cambridgeshire and Greater Manchester.
They are partially government-funded but need sponsorship and donations to sustain their ambitious programmes.
The Western Front Association was formed in 1980 to maintain interest in the First World War (1914-1918). The ‘WFA’ works to perpetuate the memory, courage and comradeship of all, from all sides, on all Fronts: on land, at sea, in the air and on the Home Front.
The Western Front Association is non-political and does not seek to glorify war.
Armed Forces Day is a chance to show your support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community: from currently serving troops to Service families, veterans and cadets.
There are many ways for people, communities and organisations across the country to show their support and get involved, from attending an event or joining us online to throwing a party or local event.
