Veterans in Communities – Hyndburn
We provide a wide range of activities and support. Some, such as helping to develop an action plan to deal with housing or financial issues, are done on a one-to-one basis. Others are based on peer support through participation in activities with others in similar situations. These include our allotment project, the walks programme, outdoor activity days, Art Group, VIC Choir, and social inclusion trips. Our outreach sessions raise awareness of the service and make it as accessible as possible
What we do:Veterans in Communities (VIC) does what it says on the tin. Our aim is to enable ex-services and emergency services personnel and their families to be a part of their local community. Returning to it, belonging to it and prospering in and as a part of it. It’s not about being separate to the community, but sharing the skills, experiences and knowledge of our members, be they civilians or ex-armed forces personnel, to work towards a shared goal of building resilience and well being for all. All of our activities and projects are open to members of the local communities, some of whom may be experiencing the same difficulties as veterans.
Activities:At our Hyndburn drop-in, we offer veteran outreach support in a friendly and safe environment. Have a chat over tea & biscuits and browse the wide array of products on sale, that have been made by veterans. The Railway Club is full steam ahead!
