Shoulder to Shoulder

The government this week unveiled new measures to improve the care for troops experiencing mental health problems, including a free 24-hour helpline and more dedicated nurses.

These new services came as a result of reforms recommended by a review published last month. The review also calls for better health screening and new networks of voluntary support. And here at TimeBank we're ahead of the game as we'll soon be launching our latest mentoring project - matching ex-service personnel experiencing mental health issues with volunteer mentors. Shoulder to Shoulder will be launching next month, so watch this space!

You can't sign up to volunteer yet but we're looking for a Project Coordinator to oversee the project.
