Volunteer for PTSD UK

Volunteer for PTSD UK

As a volunteer for PTSD UK you can help boost our power, lighten the load, and exponentially increase our impact. SO important for achieving our mission to support everyone affected by PTSD, no matter the trauma that caused it.

We’re still a very small charity, so we don’t have many of the ‘typical’ volunteering opportunities you may expect – currently we’re on the lookout for people who have specific professional skill-sets who can help get our messages out there, to the people who need to know we’re there for them.

For example, we’re looking for people who can volunteer their time, equipment and expertise in areas such as Google AdWords specialists, Social Media content creators, Copywriters, Photographers, Videographers, Actors & Actresses, Models, Video content creators, Voice-over artists, Animators, Fundraising Specialists, Design/Artwork, Researchers, Legal and Accountancy.

If you have a skill like this you think we can use, and you’re willing to freely give your time, energy, and expertise to PTSD UK, then THANK YOU – please fill in the form below and we’ll be back in touch in the next few weeks.

PLEASE NOTE: If you’d like to volunteer for us on a more general basis, we’ll post on our Facebook and Instagram pages whenever we have opportunities become available. 


You’ll find up-to-date news, research and information here along with some great tips to ease your PTSD in our blog.

Treatments for PTSD

It is possible for PTSD to be successfully treated many years after the traumatic event occurred, which means it is never too late to seek help. For some, the first step may be watchful waiting, then exploring therapeutic options such as individual or group therapy – but the main treatment options in the UK are psychological treatments such as Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprogramming (EMDR) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).

Traumatic events can be very difficult to come to terms with, but confronting and understanding your feelings and seeking professional help is often the only way of effectively treating PTSD. You can find out more in the links below, or here.
