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.
12 Bury Road
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.
