The VIC model is organic in its development and recognises a need to support veterans through a number of community-based activities in East Lancashire and parts of Greater Manchester.
VIC is currently delivering a number of activities and services; Community Outreach, Social Inclusion, Outdoor activities, Family Support, Community based projects, a Community Arts and Craft group, and Community Singing Group.
Our community projects and activities give the opportunity to use the skills and experiences gained from their service careers. These activities also give the opportunity to gain further qualifications that are recognised in civilian life and can lead into future employment.

Our activities have been designed to build confidence, self-esteem, motivation and team building through peer support.

Charity Number: 1175204

Our team includes a number of veterans and we offer outdoor experiences, activities and adventures at beautiful locations throughout the South West.

WAY is the only national charity in the UK for people aged 50 or under when their partner died. It’s a peer-to-peer support group run by a network of volunteers who have been bereaved at a young age themselves, so they understand exactly what other members are going through.

WAY was founded in 1997 and now has more than 2,800 members across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. WAY aims to provide peer-to-peer emotional and practical support to young widowed men and women – married or not, with or without children, whatever their sexual orientation – as they adjust to life after the death of their partner.
