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.

"If Outside the Wire had not been there for me at my time of need I believe, hand on heart, that my son would be growing up without a Dad."

"Outside the Wire has taken me from being on the brink to being fully functioning."
