Phoenix Heroes 2018 Roundup News
Posted on 1st January 2019 at 23:49
Phoenix Heroes is a British Veteran non-profit registered Community Interest Company (CIC) providing support to our veterans and families dealing with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), our support structure also reaches out to our homeless Veterans as in many homeless cases there is a related link to mental health problems. Our support services are based around providing outdoor group activities to our veterans, their families and carers via a range of different service providers. We are currently working with a local organisation named Hawk Farm who are acting as our service provider for horse activity days and carp fishing chill days, we are also working with a number of other service providers that have allowed us to branch out and offer a wide range of different outdoor activities.
Our approach is very informal, the idea of bringing veterans together to take part on one of our outdoor group activities is to establish a community within a community where everyone has much in common, we believe that this is the most important stage of our service delivery concept. Thereafter we are able to identify if anyone has any further needs with regards to training courses, employment or any underlying issues that we can support them with. This is where our credible network of course providers, employment professionals and other veteran support organisations can be brought in to offer their services. We believe that this approach offers a trusted and effective way of getting someones life back on track, of course we have a professional PTSD body to refer back to and monitor our service delivery activity but veterans supporting veterans is a very powerful part of our approach, gaining trust at the early support stage is an important factor to a successful outcome.
