  • Our Story

    Veterans are men and woman who have sacrificed a lot for the defense of this great nation and this includes their lives, they experience the horrors of war and the dark side of humanity in places like Iraq, Afghan, Bosnia, Kosovo stretch as far back as the World War 2. But what happens when the guns fall silent, the victory parade ends and the service man and woman have dekitted and find them selves in civilian street. One of the biggest killers with in the Veteran community is mental health, Veterans often have difficulty settling into civilian life, unable to hold down employment, problems maintain a relationship, problems living with in the community they are try to settle in, on top of this there is also Post Traumatic Stress disorder (PTSD), flash back from previous service in a forward combat area, reliving traumatic experiences, then add social isolation, survivors guilt and depression, some Veteran use alcohol and substance abuse till they fall into that dark place were they are on the edge of the abyss contemplating suicide. What better form of counselling then within the community of the same people who have walked the same path as the Veteran. We want to get the Veterans out of their homes back in with their Veteran family by putting on events and trips, by doing this we hope to get Veterans mixing and regain some confidence in themselves and their social skills as well as identify Veterans having troubles and sign posting them to the relevant agencies for counselling,
