Support Offered

Sapper Support is unique in its approach to supporting the veteran community. We offer instant support regardless of cap-badge or service to our callers.
Trained in PTSD awareness by the UK’s premier mental health charity MIND, we are able to couple this with experience of the battle field as well as the day to day issues that life throws at us once we leave the safe confines of the MOD.
We are able to give those who are not yet diagnosed, the ability to take ownership of their future. Giving them the opportunity to book a private assessment of their choosing, whilst not having to worry about the cost, as we pick up the bill. This reduces the waiting time for a GP referral from (on average) four months to two weeks.
Th benefits of this are quite plain to see.
Firstly, reduction of impact on the NHS and GP’s. Secondly, the psychological effect on the individual in question who now doesn’t have a mammoth wait to be seen by a clinical professional.

We run a 4 week drama activities project each May. This, at the request of our Veterans, leads to the tour of a play devised by the Veterans together with the actors, both professional and volunteer drama students.
Most of the Veterans we work with have mental health issues such as PTSD, and we have considerable success in improving their lives.
We also run weekly drama workshops which have a strong sociable element to them. This means that we can provide support for our Veterans throughout the year, and Veterans who cannot cope with a 4 week commitment can still be involved. We will be working with schools in the Tayside area to create short scenarios that we will perform to the schools in order to raise discussions about mental health issues.
We work in a way that revives skills that our Veterans already possess: courage, a sense of family, communication skills, a sense of humour, focus on a task, team work etc – skills that are in fact all common to drama work. We then add in the creative and imaginative context of the work and staff. All of this takes place in a safe and secure environment that we take time to build.
We work in partnership with Legion Scotland, Veterans First Point, Combat Stress, Step Together, Help for Heroes Band of Brothers/Sisters, Dundee Council and the Dundee and Angus College.
