Senior Volunteer and Community Fundraising Officer
Combat Stress was established in 1919. We are the UK’s leading charity for veterans’ mental health. For almost a century, we’ve helped former servicemen and women deal with trauma-related mental health conditions like post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety and depression.
Today we provide UK-wide support to veterans from every service and every conflict, on the phone and online, in the community and at our treatment centres. We’re on a mission to raise awareness that invisible injuries can be just as hard to cope with as physical ones. So, when a veteran is having a tough time, we’re there to help tackle the past and to take on the future.
A fantastic opportunity has arisen for an experienced, highly motivated and enthusiastic fundraiser to join the team at Combat Stress, the veterans' mental health charity. This is an exciting time to be joining as we are gearing up for the charity’s centenary in 2019. We have big aspirations and are looking for a fantastic new senior officer to help us to achieve them!
