If you are affected by any of the issues that our poems highlight there are lots of organisations that can provide support, whether you are a veteran, in service or the loved one of someone who suffers. Simply press the left mouse button over the text below for further information.

The Not Forgotten

Whilst the aims of The Not Forgotten have remained much the same throughout its history, it has adapted to meet the changing needs of the serving wounded and veterans with disabilities.

Despite the loss of our records in an air raid in 1941, we can be reasonably confident that about one million men and women have benefitted from our activities since 1920. Whilst the need for our work remains, The Not Forgotten will continue to ensure that those who have proudly served their country, and are suffering as a result, will not be forgotten.

Style for Soldiers

In gratitude for the courage and sacrifice of our service men and women, Emma visits Headley Rehabilitation Centre for the injured to make complex trauma and neuro patients a complementary bespoke shirt in luxury cottons. Also to those patients who need them, a hand carved ebony walking stick with a buffalo horn handle, and silver band engraved with their regiment and initials. They are extremely appreciative, taking great trouble to choose their fabrics and style of shirt, and there is always excitement when they see the finished shirts and sticks. Style for Soldiers have received many moving letters and emails of thanks from the injured veterans, when of course they are the ones to be thanked.

By Matthew Green

Over the last decade, we have sent thousands of people to fight on our behalf. But what happens when these soldiers come back home, having lost their friends and killed their enemies, having seen and done things that have no place in civilian life? In Aftershock, Matthew Green tells the story of our veterans’ journey from the frontline of combat to the reality of return.

Founded in 2007 Help for Heroes provides direct, practical support for wounded, injured and sick veterans, servicemen and women and their loved ones.

Combat Stress are the leading Veterans' mental health charity in the UK providing treatment for ex-Service personnel suffering with mental ill-health including Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), anxiety and depression. It doesn't matter how young or old you are, where you Served, or whether you saw combat - we may be able to help. If you are the loved one or carer of an ex-Service man or woman, there's support for you too.
