About Project 360°
Project 360° is an innovative and extensive national partnership project in which Age Cymru is working alongside veteran’s charity Woody’s Lodge, and Age Alliance Wales members.
Former armed service personnel can have difficulties coping with civilian life and, in particular, accessing the health and social care they need to live a fulfilled life. Project 360° aims to ensure that services provided by Age Alliance Wales members are meeting the needs of older veterans, and that the right support is given to older veterans through a 360° provision. The project will also bring the combined services of Age Cymru and Age Alliance Wales to those veterans attending Woody’s Lodge in an environment in which they feel comfortable and familiar, and develop a second facility in North Wales to replicate the same.
To be supported by the project you must have been a member of the UK armed services, reservists, or seen active service in the merchant navy for one day or more, and aged 65 or over. The project can also provide support and guidance for families and carers of eligible veterans.
The project is funded by the Aged Veterans Fund initiated by the Chancellor using LIBOR money, and its beneficiaries are military veterans in Wales aged 65 or over.
