We help all veterans, first responders, their family members, youth service professionals, at risk young adults and Carers.
In 2021 and going forwards we also have a focus on supporting NHS Frontline workers.
Dare To Live aims to address some of the issues and challenges these groups may face, such as depression, anger, anxiety, stress and social exclusion due to their challenging work and life experiences. We also recognise the difficulties faced by those supporting these vulnerable groups, eg. professionals, carers and family members.
The challenge of CV19 and the impact on our NHS Frontline workers (and other key workers) has been immense. We are working hard to put in place funded programmes so we can endeavour to meet the demand for support for those in need.
Participants are able to realise their own value and unique significance – this is often the key that unlocks the potential to successful transition into civilian/community/family life.
We actively work according to the criteria of the Armed Forces Covenant in terms of supporting the reintegration of ex-service personnel to civilian life by advocating and signposting employment opportunities and community resources.
Dare to Live works with integrated teams/services to best support the needs of at risk young adults, involving referrers/agencies/charities to co-create programmes of systemic, positive change that are safe and sustainable.
