Veterans drop-in at the Lighthouse

Veterans in Communities – ‘The Mess Tin’ weekly drop-in

Are you an ex-services, or ex-emergency services person living in, or near to Middleton?

Do you want to meet up with other ex-service personnel in the area to share stories, and experiences, and find support from people who have been on a similar journey to yourself?

Then why not try the weekly drop-in sessions at the Lighthouse – every Tuesday 1pm – 2:30pm

VIC is a charity that supports former ex-service men and women who have served in any of the branches of the Royal Navy, Army, Royal Marines, Royal Air Force, the emergency services (Blue Light) and their families who have or are having difficulties with returning to ‘Civvy Street’ or just want to socialise with like minded people.

Here is a copy of their latest newsletter for you to see what wider work they do.

The range of services and activities include; walking, allotments, social trips, helping the local community with small projects, training opportunities, outreach services in local areas, art groups, craft groups, and a Choir.

Their range of Peer Support activities include; community projects, outdoor activities and outreach veterans services have been designed and developed by VIC members who understand the needs of those veterans who have served.

VIC is not exclusive to those who have served in Royal Navy, Army, Royal Marines, Royal Air Force, and many of our Peer Support activities include those who haven’t served.

Our members are an integral element of VIC. For more info visit the VIC website
