Phoenix Heroes CIC
We are a non-profit Community Interest Company (CIC) supporting our veterans and their families who may need additional help with employment, community engagement, mental health difficulties including Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). We build veteran communities around the UK through a range of outdoor group activities and community engagement, family focused events. It is within these communities that our service support areas are delivered directly to those who may need additional help.
Phoenix Heroes has learned that providing support to ex-service personnel is a complex process that must address the individual’s personal, family, social, physical and mental well-being. Getting a person back to good mental health is just a start point in the long recovery process. Our CEO Gary Stockton spent 22 years in the Army and has a great understanding on how the transition when leaving the forces can be difficult.
We launched our Veteran Carp angling Community (VCAC) during COVID and we are now working on a national scale, this coupled with our Tackle 4 Heroes project has helped hundreds of veterans, serving Armed Forces personnel and their families. Many of our case studies show that we have saved lives and we have become one of the fastest growing veteran communities in the UK. As a small non-profit Community Interest Company (CIC) we are very proud that we are receiving referrals from many of the mainstream charities across the UK, this fills us with great confidence.
Our small team are all volunteers, who have committed over 30,000 voluntary hours since 2018 and we have helped over 550 veterans and families.
We align with the following UN Sustainable Development Goals:
