Trauma Research UK focuses on providing support to individuals who are living with trauma and anxiety-related disorders. Our beneficiaries are individuals who are facing these challenges and are seeking guidance and assistance in overcoming them.

Through our services, we aim to empower people on their journey towards improved cognitive and emotional well-being. We believe that everyone has the potential to successfully overcome life's challenges, given the right support from individuals who have experienced and overcome similar issues.

We offer various forms of help and support to our beneficiaries. We provide an extensive collection of resources via our website, we have a regularly updated blog and mentoring programmes. 

Additionally, our dedicated volunteers, who have overcome their own life challenges, play a crucial role in our organisation. They serve as mentors and guides, offering one-on-one support, sharing their personal stories, and providing practical advice to help others navigate their own journeys.

Our service users can receive guidance from our trained mentors that focus on building coping mechanisms, stress management techniques, and fostering resilience.

The impact of Trauma Research UK lies in the positive transformation we facilitate in the lives of our beneficiaries. By providing them with a supportive community, personalised guidance, and access to resources, we empower individuals to think and feel better. We strive to help them regain control over their lives, build resilience, and develop the necessary skills to manage their trauma and anxiety-related disorders.

Ultimately, our help matters because it gives individuals hope and the belief that they can overcome their challenges. By connecting them with those who have triumphed over similar obstacles, we offer a source of inspiration and validation that recovery is possible. 


To meet our objectives, Trauma Research UK employs several strategies and activities:

  1. Outreach and Awareness: We actively engage in outreach efforts to raise awareness about mental health issues, trauma, and anxiety-related disorders. This is mainly done over social media platforms. Additionally, we are hosting a charity ball in Leeds in September this year.
  2. Volunteer Recruitment and Training: We recruit dedicated volunteers who have overcome their own life challenges and are passionate about helping others. We provide comprehensive training programs to equip them with the necessary skills and knowledge to support our beneficiaries effectively.
  3. Supportive Community: We foster a supportive and inclusive community where individuals can connect with each other and share their experiences. This sense of belonging helps to combat isolation and provides a valuable support network for our beneficiaries.
  4. Personalized Support: Our charity offers personalised support through one-on-one mentoring and guidance. Our trained volunteers work closely with individuals, providing empathy, understanding, and practical advice based on their own experiences. This personalised support ensures that our beneficiaries receive tailored assistance that addresses their specific needs.
  5. Workshops and Educational Programs: We are in the process of creating wellness workshops aimed at empowering individuals to manage their mental health effectively. These programmes will focus on providing practical tools and coping strategies to enhance cognitive and emotional well-being.
  6. Continuous Evaluation and Improvement: We regularly evaluate our programmes and services to ensure their effectiveness and relevance. Feedback from our beneficiaries and volunteers is actively sought, and we use this information to refine and improve our offerings.
