The Facts

10%

Of the UK homeless population are ex-forces personnel.

4.7%

Of ex-forces personnel suffer from PTSD.

2.7%

Of the general public suffer from PTSD.  (Non ex-forces personnel)

The number of military personnel now suffering with PTSD or other mental health conditions are rising rapidly.

 

Many veterans find themselves homeless, with no hope, no support and through no fault of their own.  

 

They turn to alcohol or drugs or both to help them through each day, to block out the horrors they have persistent flashbacks of.

 

These men and women put their lives on the line for our country, don’t they deserve better?
