We’ve recently done some great work with Bolton Clarke in development of a health and well being video toolkit. We look forward to its distribution in the months ahead. We’ve also participated in numerous information sharing sessions with other Ex Service organisations and promoted our message of holistic health and post traumatic growth to hundreds of listeners.
Of course day-by-day we are engaging with individual veterans and their family members and offering encouragement and advice.
Thanks to all our supporters and sponsors. We are making a positive difference and raising the health and well being of veterans and their families, every day.
