Weʼre raising £10,000 to help UK Veterans with mental health issues, whose needs are being ignored. Can you help us do this?

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

Veterans Growth is a new initiative set up by Jason Stevens. Jason was medically discharged from the MOD in 2016 after a medical incident ended a 16 year career and he has since been diagnosed with PTSD.

Jason is running an initiative to provide help, support and advocacy to all fellow UK Veterans seeking help with their mental health. The keystone of the charity is an on-site programme of horticultural therapy.

Many scientific and peer-reviewed studies have proven the beneficial link between horticulture and mental health and wellbeing. From a personal perspective, Jason has been involved in and working in horticulture for the past few years and has experienced first-hand the positive effects of being around plants and nature, both indoors and out.

Veteran suicides are increasing day by day; there is an urgent need for us to get up and running and do whatever we can to help, as quickly as possible.

Although Jason has invested a large chunk of his own money into the charity and the on-site build, there are things we need:

£45 will buy one set of secateurs with a rolling grip to be used by Veterans with mobility issues.

£40 will buy a set of steel toe cap boots that individuals will need to wear.

£30 will buy a set of hand tools to be used on a daily basis.

£4000 will make the site accessible to everyone.

£1500 will buy a composting toilet

Raising these funds means we will be in a position to provide help and support and to welcome the first Veterans onto our Horticultural Therapy course in 2019. Thank you for your support.
