You don’t have to have served in the military to be struggling or experience a trauma, it can happen to anyone of us at any time. Too many people we come across have found it dif cult to access help because they experienced their trauma in the wrong place at the wrong time, delayed accessing help or do not have the right paperwork.
Who Dares Cares aims to support all people and their families experiencing the effects of trauma through practical support, activity and Buddy Buddy systems so that no one should ever feel alone.
This group is secure Facebook page admin is provided by volunteers.
It is a safe space for people and their families to get peer support via the main page or to message admin privately if they want to have an offline chat. It can be a place to say you are having a bad day but can also be a place to celebrate the good days and success that you experience. No one should ever feel alone with nowhere to turn.
We now have monthly Walk Talk and Brew’s set up in Lanarkshire, Edinburgh and Lancashire.
These are supported by volunteers or people living with PTSD. The idea is to participate in some gentle exercise. Spend time with people having similar experiences and have some food and a brew at the end. It is not about suffering from PTSD it is about learning to live with PTSD!
We dare you to care, become active in our charity work, support our activities, take part and raise funds to help our future activities.
