How can we help?

We build the capacity to deliver the Armed Forces Covenant - the Nation’s commitment to Veterans. It is a pledge that ensures Veterans and their families have access to a wide variety of support and are treated fairly.

We educate key players within local communities regarding the needs of Veterans, offering solutions to problems, suggestions and ideas, advocacy, signposting and practical help.

We work collaboratively with the Office of the Veterans’ Commissioner for Northern Ireland, and support individual Veterans, their families and carers, as well as groups and organisations that provide a range of support services and activities for Veterans.

We advocate a holistic approach to providing options to Veterans and help them to make informed decisions. We sit at the heart of the network, where we interact top down and bottom up, and endeavour to find a solution to all Veterans’ diverse needs.
