Dare To Live - Veterans Programme
Wed, 16 Aug 2017, 09:00 – Fri, 18 Aug 2017, 17:00 BST
Many servicemen and women face their greatest fight for survival during the process of integrating back into civilian life. The charity aims to address some of the issues and challenges former service personnel may face, such as depression, anger, anxiety, stress and social exclusion. Participants are able to realise their own value and unique significance – this is often the key that unlocks the potential to successful transition into civilian life.
The programmes are sensitively delivered as half day, one, two or three day experiences and are broken down into a series of 40-minute modules with a mix of classroom-based activities and non ridden exercises with horses. (No previous horse experience is required.)
“Dare to Live was a truly humbling experience and has given me some great life coping skills”
“I know of no cure for PTSD, therefore I must rely upon developing coping mechanisms to help me through. That is exactly what Dare To Live does, and has done for me. It is a helping hand that has enabled me to be better placed to cope when I need to most”
“I have never been a horse person, but this brings you out of that depression and loss, and shows you that all is not lost”
