Work For Us

Woody’s Lodge is an inviting meeting space and social hub for veterans of the Armed Forces and Emergency Services, as well as their families. Here with us they can receive expert help and guidance for their new lives after active service has ended; as well as a safe space to reengage with their friends, family and wider community.

In our first six months, we received over 1,200 visits from Veterans in Cardiff and the wider Vale of Glamorgan. We have grown a lot since we first opened at HMS Cambria in 2017 and now we have a Woody’s Lodge in North and South Wales.

As Woody’s Lodge are growing and developing, grow with us. We’re always looking for new skills and new people to add to our team.
