Socialising & Friends

Here at Woody’s Lodge, we’ve found that it’s easy for veterans of the Armed Forces and Emergency Services to fall through the cracks and become isolated or find that they stop socialising with friends as much after their service is finished.

However, we provide a meeting space dedicated to helping veterans to reconnect with their peers as well as with their own friends and family, sharing their common experiences across all ages and service background. We’ve found that with new-found friends or with old friendships rekindled, isolation and loneliness can become a thing of the past as the problems of the world seem less overwhelming.

We understand that mental & physical health issues can seem endless and make the world seem a bleak place. We believe that friendship and socialising enables many with mental health challenges such as PTSD, anxiety or depression or physically debilitating conditions or injuries, the courage and support to deal with their issues in a positive way.

Woody’s Lodge is a social hub for a wide variety of people connected to veterans, regardless of their age, experience or background. From family days and activities for the whole family to specific groups for female veterans or support for the carers of veterans, whether they’re partners or children; here at Woody’s we’ve discovered that by bringing people together, we can reduce isolation and help veterans to start re-building their lives.
