Safe Streaming

Please consider the following

The streaming community is a great place to connect with others across the globe, that’s why gaming to support veterans’ mental health is a perfect way to do something you love while supporting an important cause.

However, while it can be good for mental health, there are a few things you should consider.



  • Keep it safe, keep it legal, and stick to your platform’s community guidelines.
  • Streamers should be 18 years old or over: If you’re under 18 ask a parent or guardian to email us at streaming@combatstress.org.uk so we can help.
  • Privacy: Think about where you will livestream – is there anything in the background that you don’t want others to see? Make sure any personal or identifying information is out of shot. Make sure to check the community guidelines for the site you're streaming on.
  • Comment moderation: If you don’t already have regular moderators ask a friend to watch the comments on the livestream and moderate for you, so you can focus on your fundraising activity. They could do this remotely or be with you in-person so you can debrief or celebrate together after your event.
  • Blocking and reporting: Before you livestream, take time to familiarise yourself with the blocking and reporting functions of the platform. It’s a good idea to read the community guidelines to make sure you know what counts as inappropriate behaviour and how to report it.
  • House rules: Consider including some house rules for people watching the livestream. We’ve put some suggested house rules in the tab below if you need a place to start.
  • Keep it PG (but if not, give a warning!): If your stream isn’t going to be suitable for all ages (whether because of your language, game or other content choices) please make sure this is labelled appropriately on whatever platform you’re using.


  • Be kind
  • Respect others
  • Include everyone
  • Listen to moderators
  • Don't spam
  • No bullying, sexism, racism, homophobia or hate-based chat
  • No spoilers for the game
  • No advertising or self-promotion
  • No joking about mental health or suicide
