The Nepalese Gurkha Veterans Community Project in Woolwich is a social and educational group helping Gurkha veterans, their wives, widows and beneficiaries adjust to new lives in the UK. Gurkhas played a vital role in the British Army for 200 years and were granted residency rights by the UK Government. Age UK Bromley and Greenwich supports the Gurkha community to enjoy life in the UK and deal with the challenges they face, including language and social barriers. The Nepalese Gurkha Veterans Project offers a stimulating environment, where promotion of health and wellbeing is paramount and access to Age UK’s and other vital services is on tap.
