Armistice Day – What does Veterans Support look like in Dundee?

Date: Monday 11th November   /   Time: 7:00pm - 8:00pm

This event is hosted by Dundee Humanists as part of Interfaith Week, and all are welcome. We will hear from David Cruickshanks, a Peer Support Worker with Veterans First Point (V1P) about the services they provide, why they are needed, and how they are benefiting veterans.

Veterans First Point (V1P) Tayside opened in September 2015 and works alongside Dundee Health & Social Care Partnership, NHS Tayside, and third sector providers to meet the needs of veterans ‘whatever they may be’. A well established team provides services covering Tayside-Dundee, Perthshire & Angus, and includes Veterans Peer Support Workers, Clinicians, Therapists and Administration staff.

Services include:

  • Information and signposting
  • Understanding and listening
  • Support and social networking
  • Health and well-being

Come along and find-out more.

‘Lest we Forget’

We acknowledge and remember the impact of human conflict, and the often heavy losses suffered as a result of them. Armistice Day is an opportunity to reflect on this, and this evening’s meeting is intended to highlight the valuable work of agencies and support networks that have emerged to bring practical aid and comfort to those who have suffered injury, trauma, or bereavement.

With thanks to local group volunteers Robbie, Ellen and Izzy.
