The veterans support drop in offers a range of representation, including, Help for Heroes, NHS Op courage, Op NOVA, Veterans UK, Alzheimer’s Society, and many more.
Each drop in session gives opportunity to have direct access to multiple services which are mentioned above. Not only does the drop in serve as a support network, but also for social support and a chance meet other veterans, have a coffee and a chat with like minded people.
During each drop in, there is always opportunity to find out what events and activities are coming up and on offer for veterans and serving personnel. You can also ask our Veteran support Navigator about other groups that are designed for Veterans in Swindon.
