It's not a website that inspires confidence. No mention of anything beyond "working with the NHS" (justifying the NHS logo in the footer?), a business centre address, not a charity nor a company, and only the most vague information. Could be owned by Astral Public Service Ltd / Astral Training Ltd which don't have a web presence that I can find.

Plus I wonder what they think they can do that TRBL & SSAFA can't!

No it made me suspicious too but I wasn't jumping in with both feet. It looks like they could be earning money for pretty much just signposting to other agencies - such as the NHS.

If it has the NHS logo that could lead some to automatically believe it is an NHS run org surely (I know I would think that). To echo a few of the other sentiments I'd stick with SSAFA/RBL and the various BF's. As for dealing with self medication do they have trained workers or do they have an MoU with the local PCT or others? Seems like money for old rope to be honest, but good luck to em.

they are an NHS organisation who will not only put you in touch with various organisations but will actively casework you from start to finish. They are still in the early stages as yet but have had over 150 people through the door thus far and are making them selves know in the north west. Feel free to PM me for more info

they are run by the NHS and yes they do sign post to various agencies thats the whole idea. Thet case work you from start to finish to make sure you get the right help from various organisations. They try to deal with all your problems not just one ie. you are unemployed, drinking, homeless and suffering with PTSD. They would guide you through the various people you need to see to deal with these problems. They have a veterans forum and are always looking for people to take part ive been to several meetings and have seen what they are all about and truly belive they will only get bigger as time goes by.

The NHS logo both on the website and posters and cards gives it away. I became aware of them through my wife who is also NHS ( working in substance missuse). She works with both serving and ex service folk and put me in touch with them as they are always looking for ex services to sit on there forums and steering group.

the forums aren't on the website. They are live meetings involving both ex services and live at ease staff. For info contact info@liveat-ease.org.uk as i say they are looking to increase the number of ex service folk at these forums/meetings. Feel free to pm me for more info about them.
