Supporting adult family members of physically or psychologically injured British Armed Forces personnel and veterans.

We know how challenging it can be to support a loved one who’s struggling, and we want to help.

By joining our peer support network, you’ll be immersing yourself in a community of people who’ve felt exactly how you’re feeling right now. No more having to explain yourself… we all just get it. That level of understanding can have a positive impact in so many ways:

Our peer support service will connect you with a network of Forces families, who’ll offer you genuine support and understanding.

We also work collaboratively with many other organisations and charities, and have a range of trusted parties that we can signpost you to for specific military family support services.

We aren’t part of the military Chain of Command, your Unit Welfare Service or the MoD.


We’re an independent registered charity

Our services are completely confidential


The Ripple Pond was set up to help to reduce isolation and enable mutual support, to provide a community where members can receive a sense of belonging, connection and safety, and give trust and investment over time.


Our network of trained volunteers provide practical and emotional support for new and current members across the UK. If you can offer 2 hours a week and would like to get involved please get in touch.


Thank you for choosing to support us, The Ripple Pond relies on external donations and grants to be able to continue to offer peer support.
