Positive Pathways for Armed Forces Veterans
The Positive Pathways programme aims to connect the Armed Forces Veterans within the Community and improve their physical and mental health and wellbeing.
The programme looks at improving wellbeing by bringing Veterans together through physical activities, social events and various other sessions. As a group we work together forming a supportive circle to support 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 veteran community feels a part of the team. It doesn’t matter if you were Army/Navy/Royal Air Force/Royal Marines/Merchant Navy we stand together as a community who have served our country. How long you served for is irrelevant too. We are about togetherness because we are much stronger as a collective.
Currently we are running Coffee Mornings (On Zoom) every Thursday as well as Walk and Talk Sessions every Monday morning from Fleetwood Marine Hall. These sessions are allowing us to connect and socialise after what has been an extremely tough and isolating year for so many of us.
We also run Kayaking days, Introduction to Drone flying courses and trips to the National Memorial Arboretum which much more to come.
In the future we are looking to provide a variety of sessions such as veterans football and fitness classes as well as social meetings and family events.
There will also be support and signposting for veterans 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.
