Plymouth Veterans and Family Hub
01752 201 766
We would love for you to join us to jump for the Plymouth Veterans and Family Hub. We are a new service, launched in October 2019 and would love to meet you all on the day and work with you to raise awareness for our veterans. All money raised will enable us to continue our support and to organise and run family centered events throughout the year. It is important to us that we have a holistic approach for the whole family and nurture relationships through social events and providing environments for peer support and empowerment.
The hub provides social activity, peer support and mentoring, casework, support for older carers, and works with a range of organisations in the city to shape better pathways to employment, mental wellbeing, welfare, housing advice and financial information.
The hub is run by veterans and their families for veterans and their families. We have a drop-in lounge at the hub for veterans of the armed forces, reservists, and their families. Coffee, tea and camaraderie always available.
The Hub works, with local health service partners, to help veterans get the support that they are entitled to under the military covenant. We deliver training for health and wellbeing staff in the city, delivered by, and with veterans, raising awareness of entitlement, growing an understanding of issues facing veterans, their families and carers.
In the Hub we have a Caseworker, who works with Advice Plymouth, to provide:
• Information and advice for veterans and their families.
• Assessments of need and support plans developed with you.
• Co-working with partner organisations to deliver the required support.
• Outreach work in various community settings.
