Welcome to Veterans at Ease

Veterans at Ease is a  registered charity committed to helping Veterans, Serving Military Personnel and their Families deal with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and other combat stress related issues.We will help anyone who feels they need our suport whether they have been diagnosed with PTSD or not.

You can contact us direct by calling 07584 056181 or email us at info@veteransatease.org.

Veterans at Ease conforms fully with the Data Protection Act and all calls and emails will be treated with the utmost confidentiality.

Evidence has shown that the majority of service men and women do not seek help with regard to combat related stress issues until 10-14 years after the event.  Considering the United Kingdom’s recent Military commitments in Iraq, Northern Ireland and Afghanistan (with the numbers at any one time being as high as 15,000+), the figure for those potentially suffering from their experiences whilst on active service is substantial.

WE ARE HERE TO HELP THOSE WHO HAVE SERVED AND STILL SERVE FIND PEACE OF MIND

Please help us to spread the word and support those who have served on our behalf, by donating or organising a fundraising event.  See our ‘how you can help page’ for further details.
