Dealing with PTSD, social readjustment and emotional problems.
The Bridge for Heroes was established in September 2010 by Mike and Helen Taylor with the aim of delivering direct and immediate support to the HM Armed Forces community, veterans and their families.
Since its opening in June 2011 the Contact Centre in King’s Lynn has provided support through respite breaks, compensation claims, pensions advice, veteran advice and guidance, housing advice, service records and medal applications, and military family research.
The Contact Centre, based across two floors, has an easily accessible ground floor, seating area, museum, therapy room and small charity shop. The first floor consists of one-to-one areas for carrying out workshops, training sessions and family support.
The interactive Military Experience Day and Education Centre (MEDEC) is a living history museum filled with authentic artefacts, exhibits and a hands-on shooting range. The MEDEC is manned by volunteers and the funds raised go towards the early identification of PTSD.
