Stress Down Day UK

What’s it all about?

Our Stress Down Day UK initiative promotes positive mental health while raising funds for veterans.

A little like a dress down day, we ask people to donate an amount of money for time off to de-stress, with employers giving staff time off. Any donations go towards helping struggling veterans.

How to get involved

Check out our dedicated Stress Down Day UK website! In particular we’re encouraging firms or organisations who’ve signed up to the Armed Forces Covenant to get involved. It’s a great way to ‘walk the walk’ and show you’re supporting veterans. Not sure if your company has? Check out the list on the Armed Forces Covenant website.
