The lockdown may be lifting, but the pandemic is having a lasting impact on the lives of veterans and their families. Since the start of the outbreak, we’ve seen a big increase in calls from those who are lonely, anxious or worried about the future.
Our team are working tirelessly to keep our wounded, and their loved ones, feeling safe and connected during these difficult times - delivering mental health support over the phone, virtual health coaching and virtual meet ups to help those feeling alone or struggling with a lack of routine.
Although our recovery centres remain closed, we are working hard to adapt more of our services.
Our veterans, and their families, need us now more than ever.
Join us in support of the men and women who give our nation their all. Together we are stronger.
