First Veteran Drop-in

On Monday 24th October was VAS’s first Veteran Support Drop-in at Buckhurst Community Centre. With representation from ASDIC, DWP, Help for Heroes, NHS Op Courage, AWP, Veterans UK, The Bridge Charity. As well as support from Councillor Lawrence Elliot, Swindon Borough Council’s Armed Forces Champion.
The drop-in will be held once a month, and date and location for November will be released shortly. Veteran’s attending were able to link directly with the organisations and find the help they needed.
