Forces Welfare Media Team – on the road again

The SSVC Forces Welfare Media Team have been on the road again, filming stories about the work of the Cobseo charities.  In the last couple of weeks, they’ve produced videos, radio reports and online articles about the Life Skills programme at Blind Veterans UK’s Llandudno Centre, the expansion of SEAP’s advocacy services in Plymouth and plans for a new Veterans’ Village at Broughton House in Salford.  Scotland reporter Dave McCann also joined the Venture Trust to find out how their grant from the Forces in Mind Trust is helping veterans north of the border.  He also covered a match between Hearts of Midlothian Legends and an Army Scotland team, which raised funds for ABF Scotland.

The team doesn’t just focus on the work of Cobseo member charities though.  They’ve recently featured museum projects in Scotland and Wales, both funded by grants from the Armed Forces Covenant Fund and the work of the Community Self-Build charity that helps veterans in housing need build their own homes.

On the way is a profile of the new Transition Liaison workers for the three Families Federations, finding out what they’re going to be doing to make the move to civvy street smoother for forces families.  They’ll also be highlighting the work of the NHS Wales Veterans’ Therapy service.

You can see all the team’s videos by liking their Facebook page –, by going to and by following them on Twitter (@forceswelfare).
