The two new ‘Positive Pathways’ Navigators are now in post. Over the coming weeks, Dennis (Sports and Outdoor Navigator) employed by Andy Allen Veteran Support and Laura (Arts, Culture and Heritage Navigator) employed by Walking With the Wounded, will be introducing themselves to veterans’ organisations across NI.
Their role will be to support organisations who have previously been successful in the ‘Positive Pathways Programme’, to launch and manage their projects, and to identify and support new bids into future rounds of the programme. They will also be promoting ‘Positive Pathways Programme’, activities throughout NI and encouraging participation by veterans. Strategically both posts will work closely with the NIVSO, which retains oversight of all AFC delivery in NI.
