Lifelong support for our Forces and their families
For more Information about SSAFA and how we can help you or your
A small but significant number of Veterans leave the Armed Forces with psychological wounds. These can lead to depression, phobias, anxiety, relationship problems and, in some cases, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
Combat Stress works with Veterans of the British Armed Forces, and members of the Reserve Forces, through effective treatment and support for mental health problems.
Everything that we do is free of charge to the Veteran.
Our work is made possible through statutory, non-statutory and voluntary
fundraising. We simply couldn't do what we do without the generosity of
the Great British public.

Blind Veterans UK is committed to supporting Armed Forces veterans affected by sight loss
When someone loses their sight, the effects can be devastating for the whole family, especially without the dedicated care, support and services to help them adjust. Blind Veterans UK believes that no one who has served our country should have to battle sight loss alone.
The charity provides its beneficiaries with free support and services, including:
The charity is reaching out to the tens of thousands of ex-Service men and women who are now battling severe sight loss, who could be eligible for support but who currently do not realise it. It doesn’t matter when or how a veteran lost their sight, or when they served, Blind Veterans UK can help. If you care for a veteran with sight loss, or know someone who does, request Blind Veterans UK’s free, lifelong support at www.noonealone.org.uk or call freephone 0800 389 7979.
