Location

Situation

Keeping these families together and helping all members of the family understand and cope with living with someone who suffers Military Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and the physical illnesses as a direct result of their service. We help members to feel less isolated and to be in an enviroment with other like minded people. More importantly we will ensure lifes are saved and parents get to see their children grow up.

Solution

Giving these families something positive to focus on and look forward is very beneficial to sufferers of PTSD. We provide a marketplace with information and advice on health and wellbeing. We offer counselling to improve self esteem and to help them understand the limitations and what they can now achieve. We bring the families together through planned entertainment and fun activities like bowling, archery and many more. We give for what will be for many the only break away together as a family.
