The Association of ex-Service Drop-In Centres (ASDIC) was started in 2016 to join up Drop-Ins across UK. A Steering Committee was established in July 2016 with representatives of Drop-Ins and welfare support organisations including The Royal British Legion, SSAFA, Help for Heroes, Combat Stress and the NHS.
The Aim is to stimulate the growth of the Drop-In movement to meet growing demand by linking the 50 or more UK veterans’ and families’ Drop-Ins and helping them to support each other, so as to improve the assistance they can give to their beneficiaries.
A directory of Drop-Ins will make it easier for veterans to find help UK-wide and allow service providers to focus their resources more effectively and fill gaps, removing duplication and raising standards.
Drop-Ins, associated charities and service providers are invited to attend an inaugural conference to launch ASDIC. The outline programme is over leaf but this will be a unique opportunity for many Drop-Ins and welfare organisations to meet together for the first time. Refreshments and lunch will be provided and there will be plenty of time for networking.
There is no charge but space is limited. Attendance is by invitation only, so book your place early!
