Mobile Support Facility

Why would the charity need a Mobile Support Facility?

Primarily to save lives, help families and educate and inform groups – whilst having the comforting ability to be  flexible with time and location.

With ongoing NHS cutbacks, ever-dwindling resources and limited consultation time available (an average appointment takes 13 to 16 minutes per GP visit), plus the often long waits for referrals with limited and inflexible options on offer, most of our military/emergency services clients have already been down the statutory service route.  Practical, innovative and robust alternatives for our services personnel in life-threatening crises are desperately needed to help with a situation where demand currently outstrips supply, and the indications are that things are only going to get worse.

Purpose of a Mobile Support Facility:

To get help promptly to emotionally-charged primary clients at the time and place of need, guarantee they can be seen in a quiet, convenient, safe location  and, in this way, bring clarity into distressing and confusing situations. It isn’t always possible for the client to be seen in a suitable neutral location or environment, or appropriate to meet at their place of accommodation (for instance, if their “at home circumstances” are challenging – or on weekends), holidays or otherwise when out of hours. Nor can WiFi or a phone call substitute real human connection in their time of need. A Mobile Support Facility would give Save Our Soldier the ability to go to the point of need (given practicalities of location) and provide intense coaching for between 2 and 72 hours, as needed.

Being flexible and mobile will on other occasions enable primary and secondary clients (family members) to come to a pre-promoted meeting point,  in cities and also more remote locations, where they can receive information and education, privately and confidentially, about their PTSI/Trauma/Anxiety/Fear/Depression and/or they can also arrange to have an initial one-to-one session with a coach. Following introductory meetings of this sort, offered for the purpose of establishing rapport, and providing generic advice and education, client(s) will be introduced to their nearest coach and encouraged to move forward.

Education and understanding:

With the side of the vehicle fitted with a easy pull-out awning, to set up in combination with our 3m x 3m pop-up, a family can be comfortably sat and spoken with. Given the right weather, with side covers rolled back, entire groups could be advised and educated to understand the debilitating emotional effects of PTSI and how to work with, understand and help those suffering.
