    Veterans United Against Suicide is a not for profit company set up predominantly by Former Royal Marines in support of Veterans suffering with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

    In this year alone 35 service veterans have taken their own life, they believe due to not receiving the help they so desperately needed and their aim is to raise funds and awareness to prevent this from happening again.

    A 24 hour online helpline is already available through a sister company (Icarus) and further funding will allow them to expand this hopefully - eventually having a local outreach in every major town in the UK.

    How can you help? This link takes you to the Aviva Community award scheme where you can register and vote.

    The top scheme will win funding to help gain access to help & support nationwide.

    Definitely a worthy cause so everyone aspiring to be part of the corps should get voting as you never know when you may need that life saving support!
