The Soldiers’ Charity awards Combat Stress a grant of £250,000

ABF The Soldiers’ Charity has awarded Combat Stress a grant of £250,000 to help provide occupational therapy within their treatment centres.

Combat Stress offers occupational therapy to all veterans undertaking a residential programme at one of their three treatment centres and over the past year have introduced occupational therapists to their community teams.

Working with an occupational therapist helps veterans to identify what matters to them and encourages them to engage in “occupations” that are meaningful to them, using productive leisure and self-care activities to encourage hope, wellbeing and recovery.

Robert Marsh, Director Income Generation at Combat Stress said: “We are extremely grateful to The Soldiers’ Charity for their support to Combat Stress and veterans with mental health conditions.
