Veterans Support Services Launched in South Gloucestershire
New Veteran Support Services, commissioned by South Gloucestershire Council, have been launched to provide help to local men and women who have served in the country’s armed forces.
Many ex-military personnel and their families live happily and well in South Gloucestershire, but we know that for some, the transition to civilian life can be difficult. We have therefore allocated £30,000 over the next two years, to commission both ASSISTPLUS and Soldiers, Sailors, Airforce and Families Association (SSAFA) to provide help to those who need it, so that after their service they can enjoy the opportunities and benefits of being part of our community. They will jointly run a veteran support hub to reach out to vulnerable and isolated veterans in their own homes or within our communities.
