Help for those with PTSD

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder has been around for thousand of years, but rather confusingly under many different names.

Previous terms for what we now call PTSD have included ‘shell shock’ during WWI, ‘war neurosis’ during WWII; and ‘combat stress reaction’ during the Vietnam War.  It was in the 1980s that the term Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) was introduced – the term we most commonly use today.

Help for wounded veterans

We give Respite to any of our wounded soldiers, airmen and sailors and anyone who is terminally ill

We Care. We Give Back.

What people have to say about us.

I like to thank 1st Knight for helping me at a low point in my Life, I now Volunteer for them and it has made a big difference to me

Here are some pictures from mine and Gina’s respite break all organised by 1st Knight Military Charity. The weather had its off days but we were well looked after. We went on daily sight seeing trips and meals were cooked for us daily. I can certainly recommend 1st Knight Military Charity to give veterans who need it a well deserved break. I have suffered from long term PTSD, so this break was just what I needed. For those who don’t know me I am the veteran who is doing the Veteran canal boat. Cheers 1st Knight Military Charity.
