RNBT should be able to help as Monty has pointed out, I suggested your local RNA, only because my RMA branch has the ability of helping blokes in the situation your mate is in.

Also depends where he is most of the named above will help they all talk to each others so pick on one close to home so you can have a face to face, or they will point him to the best one to approach. Good luck I have had help from RNBT via SSAFA and from RBL

Definately aproach SSAFA and the RBL, as an ex SSAFA case worker I can assure you they will do everything to help you. As will the RBL, they are both there for you, and you are entitled to there help. Use them.

Selling your medal to pay for a boiler is a little sad.
Try getting some help first. I he sells his gong he will regret it in better times.

If he is insistent on selling then drop me a line my mate will 'hold' it for him. He can rebuy it back at a later date.
