A touching short film about Peter, a M4H Volunteer using his hobby as a recovery activity.


  • I just wanted to email you to say how happy one my clients have been with your service. He was over the moon with the amount he was given and the quality of the items. They will be great for him to focus on and gives him a sense of achievement when he finishes one which he has not had for a long time since his PTSD prevents him form leaving the house.

  • Model making also provides a sense of continued achievement and confidence building, and it is new hobby that the veterans can easily implement at home.

    We really value model making and the benefits it can have on our veterans. Thank you for your continued support, your volunteers are fantastic and help us deliver a vital recovery service.

  • I have heard many reports from veterans who make models as a distraction and time out from daily worries, ruminations, anxieties. Thank you for your part in their recovery, and the act of completion which model making brings, a sense of achievement with a lasting reminder, which they may keep.

    H. Lowry - Psychotherapist

    Veterans Outreach Support
  • The activity of model making has numerous therapeutic benefits for the veterans at Combat Stress, aiding their well-being and recovery. This can include the lifting mood and lowering anxiety, alongside the promotion of relaxation, a relief from stress and improving concentration.
