CALM Drivers

CALM Drivers. Seems like a contradiction in terms, but it doesn’t have to be.

The Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) exists to help blokes like you. We know life can get tough, and we know that driving all day on your own, battling with the clock, bikes, traffic wardens and all the rest of it, doesn’t make things easier. 

We’ve teamed up with the FTA and their Van Excellence programme to see what we can do to help.

We’ve got years of experience in helping men cope with the stresses of life, so if you want to find out more, or if you’re worried about yourself or one of your mates, check out the stuff below.

If you’re a driver, your fleet will be able to sign up to the CALM Drivers programme and get your vans stocked with CALM stuff that will help give your fellow drivers some direction when life gets tough.

Contact or call 03717 11 22 22 to find out more and get signed up.

Remember, if your finding things tough talking helps.
