Phoenix Heroes was founded in 2018 with their primary focus being to provide support to veterans and their families who are dealing with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). They also offer support to our homeless veterans and share an employment network through reputable UK businesses.
They also provide outdoor group activities via a local Essex community farm. One of the activities that has gained the attention of our veterans is Carp Angling resulting in their own fishing team being formed.
The Founder of Phoenix Heroes, Gary Stockton, served in the Army, RLC for 22 years and he has deployed to many Theatres of Operations with 16 Air Assault Brigade. Gary has first-hand experience of adjusting to the transition of leaving the Armed Forces and recognises the difficulties that some may face during this time.
Spending time on the farm with the horses and other animals is proving to be a great way of helping others. They also recognise the importance of including the veteran families, they are building a community and it is growing.
Phoenix Heroes are very proud to have Mark “Billy” Billingham, Former SAS and now instructor of Ch4 SAS Who Dares Wins as their Ambassador.
If you are still serving or a veteran of many years, we are all one big family! Everyone can donate directly to Phoenix Heroes or if you prefer support them via the Veterans Raffle.
