New Veterans Support Service

Have you served in the Armed Forces including National Service? Age UK Enfield would like to hear from you!
Age UK Enfield have launched a Veteran Support Project, a new service which supports anyone who has served in the Armed Forces or National Service and their families.
Funded by the Armed Forces Covenant Fund, the six month project will support Veterans living in Enfield to ensure that they are receiving all the benefits they are entitled to, provide other information that might be useful to them, and put them in touch with other veterans or military organisations that can offer support.
Kate Reader, the Veteran Support Project Advisor, said:
‘This is a really exciting project to be involved with; so many issues are specific to veterans, from benefits specifically aimed at people who have served in the Armed Forces to help with applying for reissues of lost medals. And because we can help anyone who has completed at least one day of military service including National Service, we are hoping to offer our support to many people over 50 in Enfield’.
To be eligible for this service, the person needs to be a Veteran (anyone who has completed at least 1 day of military service) and be 50+ or be a close family member of a Veteran.
If you or someone you know is interested in this service and would like more information they can contact Kate Reader at email@example.com or 0208 375 4120.
