A place for veterans to meet with kindred spirits, to socialize and to be offered pastoral care and advice and assistance to help them get their lives in order and to find their feet again. The assistance will also include advice about the completion of application forms, accessing educational opportunities in further and higher education, and preparation for interviews.
To provide a local base in which there will be the opportunity to meet in an informal atmosphere by offering four Centres of respite and pastoral support for veterans, based within four areas of Glasgow, supplying care and support of a specialist nature and a practical touch. The Centres will offer educational advice, job club information, therapy through horticulture, and recreation and sport. Each Centre will also have a padre in residence while the group meets and on call at all other times. (This is a direct request from many veterans who value the role of padre)
To encourage among ex-service personnel a strong belief that they are valued members of the local community by the recognition and remembrance of the sacrifices made by them and by helping them through practical support and pastoral care to integrate into local life.
Improving access to and co-ordination of advice and support for service Personnel, veterans, their families and carers in Glasgow.
