Onward Together

Onward Together for Armed Forces Veterans

The Onward Together programme aims to connect the Armed Forces Veterans within the Community and improve their physical and mental health and wellbeing.

The Onward Together (Armed Forces Community) programme looks at improving wellbeing by bringing our local Armed Forces Community which includes all serving, former and family members of the Armed Forces together through physical activities, social events, and various other sessions. As a group we work together forming a supportive circle to assist each other in all aspects of life.

Activities and sessions are aimed at all ages and abilities to be ALL inclusive so that the whole of the Armed Forces community feels a part of the team. It doesn’t matter if you were Army/Navy/Royal Air Force/Royal Marines or Merchant Navy we stand together as a community who have served our country. How long you served for or what rank you held is irrelevant too. We are about togetherness because we are much stronger as a collective.

Currently we are running Online Coffee Mornings (On Zoom) every Thursday as well as a Walk and Talk Session every Monday morning. Fridays bring us the Armed Forces Community Football sessions playing every week at Fleetwood Rugby Club. There’s even a monthly social meeting at the Tramway pub in Cleveleys on a Friday evening. These sessions are allowing us to connect and socialise after what has been an extremely tough period for so many of us with the issues caused by COVID and the cost-of-living crisis amongst others.

We also run Kayaking days and day trips with much more to come including our Annual Christmas Ball. In the future we are looking to provide a variety of sessions such as fitness classes for all ages as well as more social meetings and family events.

There will also be support and signposting for those who need help in any form. We have a great experience in working with Charities, the NHS, local councils and many more organisations to ensure that whatever the problem may be, support can be found. This could be a first step to feeling like yourself again after leaving service.
