Heroes Past & Present began as a project funded by the Heritage Trust and has evolved into part of a groundbreaking movement for the veterans community and for the future of modern good causes, run and operated by volunteers and owned by the people.
In days of government funding cuts for good causes in the wake of Covid-19 and the global, downturn in the economy it has become necessary for the people to take control of the things that are important to them and their families and their local communities.
Joint founders of the Volunteers Alliance with the PTSD Project UK – Veterans In Crisis, Heroes Past & Present now hosts the most in depth and comprehensive support network for veterans of HM Armed Forces in the United Kingdom. By adding a social media platform to an already strong platform, sharing responsibility for it’s operation with PTSD Project UK and their team of volunteers, the team at Heroes Past & Present have really stepped things up a level.
The social media platform is operated as a service to connect veterans and serving personnel alike to create a network of support, comradeship which has never been more necessary, and bids to help to combat veteran suicide with the help of another amazing organisation For The Fallen, run by Jo Jukes.
