Armed Forces Support

Combat Stress is the UK’s leading charity that specialises in the treatment and support of British Armed Forces Veterans who have mental health

Mental ill-health affects ex-Service men and women of all ages. Right now, we’re supporting over 5,000 Veterans aged from 20 to 101. We’re a vital lifeline for these men and women, and their families.

Our treatment and support services are always free of charge, and are proven to work.

Our mission is to deliver an enduring national network of support for our wounded and their families. We will inspire and enable those who have made sacrifices on our behalf to achieve their full potential.

The war in Afghanistan may be nearly over, but for those who have suffered life-changing injuries, their battles are just beginning. We will not let them fight these battles alone.


Former Forces Support is a “not for profit” Social Enterprise for members of the Ex-Forces community. All profits are re-invested into a Career Development Programme for unemployed Ex-Military personnel and their families in the North West. This includes pre-employment support, life skills and mental well-being.

Unemployed Veterans will learn a range of skills and qualifications that will assist them in approaching the job market, seeking housing, dealing with health and education issues, developing interview techniques and compiling a CV!about-us/c12jf
