Carl Burns & Kat Hindle
"Being a Military family, we have seen and felt the implications of military life first hand and knowing that for many service personnel, veterans and their family, daily life can be difficult to such a degree that support can be necessary to re-build their lives after life in the armed forces We as founders understand the type of support required varies somewhat from intense therapy to the requirement of a simple household appliance. We don’t believe we can take away the pain, hurt or difficulties our Armed Forces Community suffer but we can help by providing support where we can.
To provide relief from suffering and hardship for men or women who are or have at any time served with any branch of the British Army, Royal Navy and Royal Air Force (Regular or Reserve); Merchant Navy (in conflict) and their families, who are in need by reason of age, ill-health, disability, financial hardship or other disadvantage with the object of improving the conditions of life.
"I was very fortunate when I left the army having had only bumps and scrapes. I personally didn’t have any major injury from my tours but I did have some mental issues that I hid but tried to cope with daily, I had friends who were badly injured and some that didn't come home. Knowing what its like being in the military I know there are more personnel and families than one can count, who need help and support in some way or another. To give something back to those who still serve, have served and their families is the least I can do and this is why I chose to found Outpost"
Our vision is that Outpost Charity is a leading organisation and provider of alternative support for our Armed Forces Community affording them the opportunity to live a full, prosperous and independent life upon leaving the forces and for the long term.
Our two key areas of support are:
- Provision of Necessities such as food, clothing, white goods etc, for those in financial hardship
- Veterans Camp which is a free, 5-day, all-inclusive activity retreat in the highlands which helps improve mental health and well-being, physical health and social circumstance
