Veterans aged 65 or over: help us build a picture of your needs and aspirations
Published on 27 July 2018 02:49 PM
Project 360°, a partnership formed from Age Cymru, the veteran’s charity Woody’s Lodge, and Age Alliance Wales, would like to invite any of your readers that are military veterans aged 65 or over to help us build a picture of their needs and aspirations.
The project, funded by the Aged Veterans Fund through LIBOR money, was set up to improve the provision of health, social, and voluntary services for older veterans throughout Wales. However, before we proceed we need answers to some basic questions.
For example, how do older veterans get out and about in their community, what impacts on their day to day lives, do they look after a loved one, or do they use local health or social services?
So, if any of your readers are aged 65 or over and were a member of any of the UK armed services for one day or more, including national service and reservists, or active in the merchant navy, we would appreciate them completing our survey. Participants simply call 029 2043 1555 for a paper copy of the survey which can be returned free of charge, or visit agecymru.org.uk/project360 to complete it online.
We need older veterans to help us better understand their day to day lives so we can improve the services they need.
