The Veterans’ Places, Pathways & People Programme
The Veterans’ Places, Pathways & People programme aims to give veterans safe, welcoming places to go in their local community.
This includes providing access to mental health systems and treatment pathways to meet the needs of veterans.
The programme also aims to ensure that those who support veterans, including staff and volunteers, are provided with good quality training and are able to connect veterans with treatment options.
10 grants have been awarded throughout the UK and 4 grants have been awarded for national strategic projects.
And now, a new guide is available which provides more detail on the various projects available.
Anna Wright, Chief Executive of the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust said:
The Trust is excited about the potential that these grants can have to deliver real and lasting change. Through these grants veterans with mental health needs can have better access to effective pathways of care and support in their region; and have safe places to go to access support, reduce isolation and support positive mental health. We hope that this guide gives a useful introduction to their work; and encourage voluntary and statutory organisations to work with the Portfolios to deliver lasting change for our veterans.
