In 2015 our Counting the Costs study found that, following conflicts around the world since the 1991 Gulf War up to Afghanistan in 2014, at least 66,090 Servicemen and women and veterans who served during that time will need some form of health-related support currently, or in the years to come. And that’s on top of veterans who served in earlier conflicts such as Northern Ireland and The Falklands; many of whom have only recently started coming forward for help.
Put simply – the need for our services will continue to grow in the years to come.
Helping veterans and serving personnel to recover is more than repairing damaged bodies and minds; it’s about rebuilding lives, restoring confidence and renewing hope.
It takes time, understanding, expertise and a willingness to walk alongside someone for as long as they need help. It also takes the support of amazing friends like you.
