Brave Stories


“We see members join from 17, 18, straight out of home and, like me, they don’t have the tools or knowledge to manage their finances. “Finances are a major factor in a member’s home life, and mental health”.



Mark Edwards

“The team at Bravery Trust was so easy to work with. They did what they said they were going to do, with no strings attached. Not a lot of services can do that. It was a really positive experience for us during a difficult time”.



Tara Fitness

“In 2019, we had a choice of walking across the Bravery Trust bridge or falling off the edge of the cliff. We will be forever grateful for the lifeline which Bravery Trust gave us.”
