To increase the mental health fitness levels by delivering 1:1 specialist psychotherapy to serving members of the Armed forces, Veterans and their immediate family members.
All of our therapists come from the men and women we help who go on to train as NLP Psychotherapists. We work within the ethical guidelines of the UKCP.
VIA help veterans who have suffered the effects of war or who have found the transition to civilian life difficult.
VIA take a non-therapy approach and instead use centre based projects, adventurous activities and expeditions to help rebuild veterans’ confidence, self-esteem and self-belief.
Veterans In Communities (VIC) is an ex-services charity based in Rossendale, East Lancashire.
VIC was established in September 2012 to support serving, ex-service personnel, their families and members of the uniformed services who have experienced difficulties with transitioning back into the community on leaving the services.
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.
Veterans Outreach Support provides welcoming and relaxed places where UK veterans and family members can come for confidential social or psychological support, or simply to meet for a chat and a cuppa. Former members of British Armed Forces and Reserves, the Royal Fleet Auxiliary and the Merchant Navy are all welcome. Drop In centres are normally open once a month, follow the link to their website for more details.
Veterans Scotland’s is concerned with enhancing the welfare and well-being of the Veterans community in Scotland by encouraging cooperation and coordination between the ex-Service charities in Scotland; engaging where appropriate with the UK and Scottish governments on matters relating to veterans affairs and acting as a point of contact for government and other agencies for all matters relating to veterans policy.
