Building Veteran Communities
The transition after leaving the Armed Forces can be quite traumatic for many, new home, new place to live and a new job are just some of the things that adds additional pressures. Many veterans become isolated and feel alone, miss their friends, and find it hard to reach out for support and therefore building a veteran community is important, together we are stronger!
All the above can have an impact on mental health, this coupled with traumatic experiences whilst serving can be a challenge, the peer 2 peer support that naturally forms within a veteran community can make things a little easier.
It takes time and commitment to build a veteran community and you need to be focused on delivering regular projects, our veteran community building will always include the families and the children in everything that we do.
With your help we will be able to grow these communities across the UK and by doing so it will allow us to reaach out to more veterans and their families and offer them the relevant support that they need.
