Outside The Wire

Our highly trained and experienced workers, who are themselves ex-forces, have a particular understanding of the needs and issues faced by veterans, current serving personnel and their families.

We offer innovative, comprehensive support which includes confidential meetings at the location of your choice across Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex. We are sensitive to the complexities of military life and the often understandable resistance to admitting the extent of any personal issues, especially those relating to: PTSD and other mental health; alcohol and drug use; domestic violence and family related issues.

To make a referral, please contact the Adult Team on 01603 626123 or download and complete our referral form, or e-mail us directly at adultteam@matthewproject.org.

Outside the Wire is supported by the following organisations: The Royal British Legion, HM Treasury's Libor Fund, The Norfolk Armed Services Covenant, ABF Soldiers Charity. 

You can also contribute to our work directly by donating using Total Giving.
