Dan Arnold, co-founder of veteran support organisation All Call Signs has announced he will be stepping down from his current role as Co-Founder CEO in Spring 2021. Having founded the organisation alongside Viv Johnston and SJ James in 2018, Dan has been instrumental in the early growth and awareness of All Call Signs, helping to support hundreds of clients living with mental ill health. In a comparatively short space of time, All Call Signs has grown from a small operation to a national support provider collaborating with some of the most established services and organisations working in the veteran support space.
The organisation was borne from frustration at the lack of clear and well structured pathways in place to support veterans in crisis, following the tragic and untimely loss of Viv’s son Danny, a friend and colleague of Dan’s.
In a statement Dan said : “All Call Signs has been my life for nearly three years now. I feel privileged and proud to have been part of the team to create what we felt was the missing piece of the puzzle at the time. All Call Signs became a symbol of hope for our community and it has united communities shining light where there once was darkness.
I will forever be proud of All Call Signs and what it continues to achieve with the team we have built and its amazing community of loyal supporters. As All Call Signs continue to grow from strength to strength I feel now is a good time for me to concentrate on myself and my beautiful young family. I am really looking forward to continuing to work in the mental health support space within the NHS.
I would like to thank you all for your support and help over the years. We literally couldn’t have done it without you. I have made some amazing friends, met the most inspirational people and I wish SJ and the team the greatest of success in continuing the All Call Signs legacy and to reach those in need. It has been an emotional journey but I wouldn’t change it for the world.”
SJ said: “Through its work supporting clients, campaigning for better care pathways for veterans and its use of social media to help recover those who go missing, All Call Signs has become a household name among the veteran and serving community. Largely in part to Dan’s tireless efforts and guidance. The All Call Signs family wishes Dan well on his next adventure and will be forever grateful for all he has achieved.”
