    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    Just over a year ago The Poppy Practice CIC launched with the aim of reducing veteran suicide and increasing veteran quality of life. We've had over 100 veterans through our process since then, and many have informed us it was a life saving decision for them to use our service.

    We are entirely funded by donations and the service is ran by volunteers, we don't require much because our process makes a little go a long way.

    We don't own or rent a building or have employees, so our costs are the price of a hour (average £50) with a counsellor and any criminal records checks we run. On average a course of 6 weeks will cost £350 and ideal for general anxiety, those with increased requirements such as PTSD will have 12 course which cost us £650, some veterans have a little more, some a lot less.

    We have access to over 44,000+ counsellors and those we use come back with 5 star reviews so we know how to match skills and veterans.

    We have saved lives, we have changed lives, and we'd like to do it again this year.

    Please spare what you can, every penny is invested in the welfare of this veteran community.
