Have you suffered an injury due to serving in the armed forces? Do you have a loved one who can no longer live the life they once did due to their brave efforts in battle? Do you feel the mental as well as physical strain of living with the painful memories of war? Therapies4forces CIC is a Community interest company in the UK, who’s focus is to help past and present members of the armed forces and their families and carers, no matter when or where you served, to recover both physically and mentally from the injuries and traumas they have suffered as a result of war.
Therapies4forces Goals For the Future
Our aim is to improve health and wellbeing and reduce social isolation of UK Veterans and their families (and carers). We currently provide relaxation and wellbeing days, as well as 1-2-1 sessions. We aim to develop the service to provide education in areas such as mental health first aid, general awareness of mental health, partner massage for relaxation and wellbeing, sleep hygiene, nutrition all which go towards improving health and wellbeing. Eventually we would like to run a weekend wellbeing retreat for all who need it and have weekends for veterans, families and also provide weekend respite for families for carers to get some much needed time out to rejuvenate and recharge. Relaxation and wellbeing days provide a good opportunity for the veteran community to get together and return to their tribe, spend time chatting and making new friends and support networks, this has been very positive in reducing social isolation.
Now we are a registered CIC we plan to apply for funding so that we can grow our services and ensure that all of the veteran community can access us no matter where they live in the UK. Funding will allow us to develop our services to meet the needs of all our stakeholders.
Therapy For Families and Carers
We recognise the amazing work and support many carers and family members give to many sick ex-personnel on a daily basis – At Therapies4forces we want to extend our free treatments to such fantastic individuals, that insure our brave men and women have the best quality of life possible.
All treatments start with a free and private consultation with one of our highly trained therapists. As always it is important to us to get to know our clients, so we can create a special tailor made package that meets your exact needs and requirements. All consultation are safe, private and confidential so you won’t have to worry about a single thing. Our highest priority is to help you in every little way we can – we want to massage all your cares away and make you feel every bit of the hero you truly are.
Therapies4forces was set up in 2011 to support those who have in many cases given up so much to stand up and defend the rights of others. It’s time for us all to give something back to these courageous and inspiring service men, women, veterans and their families (military community) and to show them that we are more than thankful for everything they have done. Please take the time to read through our website, which has information on the treatments we offer, advice for families and carers, information on ways to donate and fund raise and also a section appealing to any therapist that wish to join us in our cause.
