Veterans can drop in
Aweeklydrop-insessionopen to all Armed Forces veterans and their families will run at Peterborough Town Hall.
The aim of the outreach service is to engage with the Armed Forces communities living in Peterborough to ensure they have access to any information andsupportthey may need.
The Armed Forces community drop-in will primarily be a service to signpost ex-service personnel and their families to get advice from a range of public and third sector or ga ni- sations.
The sessions will take place onaninitial three monthtrial period at the townhall’s Members’Lounge, onBridgeStreet, Peterborough, from 9am to midday every Tuesday from now until the end of March.
Cllr John Fox, Peterborough’s armed forces champion and chairman of the Armed Forces Covenant Partnership Board, said: “These drop-in sessions are aimed at supporting our ex-service personnel community here in Peterborough. It is through our work- ing relationships with groups and extensive networks that we can refer on to the appropriate service or services.
“This, for example, could be advice on gaining employment working with Peterborough Job Centre, with housing options or to talk to someone from organisations like Inspire Peterborough to get involved in disabled sport and other social activities.”
