Adults at Risk
Whilst the we have no disability football within the RAF we are extremely mindful that we may have Adults at Risk playing football, especially with Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) caused from primary duties of working within a military environment. Symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder include flashbacks, nightmares, feeling very anxious and difficulty sleeping. This can leave individuals vulnerable, we all have a duty to support and report and concerns.
