Felix Fund is thrilled to announce that the Veteran’s Foundation has generously given £20,000 in support for its Dashboard programme…
This preventative stress training course, based on mindfulness, was launched in 2016 for serving personnel from across Explosive Ordnance Disposal and Search. With the programme going from strength to strength and a real difference being seen Felix Fund wanted to open it up to veterans.
This funding will enable them to put 40 former bomb disposal or search veterans through the course, giving them tools and techniques to recognise signs of stress and to be able to deal with them in the first instance.
Melanie Moughton, Chief Executive of Felix Fund, said: “Felix Fund is here to support both serving personnel and veterans and we have always wanted to open up the Dashboard course to those no longer serving in the military. This support from Veteran’s Foundation has given us the help to do this.
“We aim to have 40 veterans attending the course over the next year which is a major step forward. We are very grateful to Veteran’s Foundation for this support.”
