As a registered charity, Combat Stress can claim back an extra 25p on every £1 donated through Gift Aid.

How does my donation or the money raised make a difference?

As a charity we are reliant on the generosity of our supporters. Without the vital donations from individuals, trusts and foundations, charities, corporations and the government we would simply not be able to provide life-changing treatment and support for veterans with mental health problems.
