As part of its long and close relationship with Combat Stress, ABF The Soldiers’ Charity has awarded a £250,000 grant to us to support our life-changing support for veterans with complex mental health issues.

Between 1 April 2020 and 31 March 2021, almost 14,000 veterans benefited from our help. More than 8,800 called our helpline, over 1300 veterans directly received support from our specialist staff, and our online self-help resources were accessed over 3,000 times.

Robert Marsh, Director of Fundraising at Combat Stress, said:
“We are extremely grateful to ABF The Soldier’s Charity for their commitment to veterans. Their generous grant will ensure former servicemen and women with complex mental health issues can receive the specialist treatment and support they need from us to rebuild their lives.”

Brigadier (Ret’d) Peter Monteith, Chief of Staff at ABF The Soldiers’ Charity, added:
“We are always proud to donate to Combat Stress, the nation’s leaders on veterans’ mental health. The Falklands conflict 40th anniversary this year is a timely moment to recognize Combat Stress’ work in helping those who served their country and need expert help with psychological injuries sustained in battle and other mental health-related conditions.”
