Coming Together To Help Veterans
All our partners that we link with for respite care offer the ability for the veteran and sometimes their family to get away into the country, to disappear from society and to just be.
To be able to reflect, go back to grass roots and just reflect on where they are at and where they want to be. Its just like “time out” which can be so difficult to find in the normal speed of life.
What our partners offer is :
• The ability to access solitude if needed
• Or support from humans or animals within the environment
• Sports and hobbies to do something different
• A chance to just sit down and talk with someone who doesn’t know you and wont judge.
• The opportunity to do nothing if this is what is needed for you to repair.
What is important is that we place you where you get chance to recover, to find yourself, to reconnect with your family.
Currently we are partnered with Woody’s Lodge in order to be able to provide this service to all Veterans, we will be looking for more partners all around the country in order to provide this crucial service improving mental health and improving lives.
Help Us Fit More Veterans!
Since becoming a charity, we have managed to fit over 70 veterans with top-class hearing aids! However, we still have more than 2,000 veterans who need our help in getting back to a normal standard of life after the hearing damage they received in their years of service. Any donations we receive are a huge help in the lives of our vets and we are eternally grateful for whatever you may be able to spare.
Proudly supporting those who serve!
