We are delighted that we have been awarded two major Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust grants: ‘Positive Pathways’ and ‘Removing Barriers to Family Life’ that will enable us to significantly develop our work across Wales over the next 2 years!
These grants have been awarded to us from The Covenant Fund, which is delivered by the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust. Their grants and funding benefit those from the Armed Forces Community, including serving personnel, families, veterans and the families of veterans.
The first grant is called ‘Removing Barriers to Family Life’ and it’s purpose is to support Armed Forces Families facing challenges. This funding will allow Woody’s to significantly extend our support to the wider Veteran and Armed Forces Family including: Partners, Children, Carers, and their community (which includes friends and peers) of all ages. If you’re a veteran or the family member of a veteran, get in touch with Woody’s Lodge to see what support we can offer you and your family.
Whilst the second grant ‘Positive Pathways’ funds projects that develop and run activities that support the mental health and wellbeing of ex-Forces. With this funding, we are developing a new project called ‘The Green, Green Grass of Home’, where we will bring veterans and their families together in green and natural settings to help them reconnect in a neutral space.
