Are you a Veteran or dependant of a Veteran?
This award-winning service has been running since 2016 and has helped older veterans and their dependants to combat isolation and loneliness. By carefully matching volunteers, who often have forces connections, with forces people, friendships are formed, experiences are shared and lives are improved, through regular visits from the volunteer.
