We have successfully supported former members of the Armed Forces to find new homes, find work or referred them to appropriate sources of support. The centre has forged links with the Royal British Legion, Macari Centre, Harpfields Centre and more recently SSAFA. We have our own SSAFA caseworkers based at the centre. The Macari centre helps us with accommodating any homeless former service personnel and the Veterans Mental Health Transition Intervention and Liaison team come to the centre to help, and support, support veterans with mental health issues such as PTSD. Other services, such as Veterans UK, regularly use the centre to see local clients.
The centre opens on a Wednesday 1000-1600hrs and Thursday 1800 to 21.30hrs. During open hours we aim to create a supportive and friendly atmosphere where you can meet like-minded people. The centre has been successful in securing two Medal of Honours for two D-Day veterans, who attend our centre regularly for a cup of tea and a chat with other veterans. We also regularly utilise our minibus, for trips to places such as the Arboretum, and Battlefield tours in Europe. We also open on other one off days as and when required.
