Veterans Contact Point (VCP) – Volunteer to mentor our Armed Forces!
The Veterans Contact Point, an Armed Forces charity, is urgently looking for volunteers to become mentors/peer support workers for our local Service Personnel who have left the Armed Forces. We welcome interest from all not just those who are veterans themselves.
The charity is calling upon motivated individuals to join its ranks and be paired up with military service personnel in the local communities of Coventry, Warwickshire & Solihull areas.
The role of a VCP mentor/peer support worker is to listen, support, motivate and empower those who they are supporting, acting as their professional advocate assisting them to access opportunities and services. We will offer you training and support to develop your skills and knowledge in supporting our Armed Forces, their families and dependants.
Civvy-street can be difficult for former members of the Armed Forces, Families & Dependants as employment, living arrangements, financial stability, support networks and personal lifestyles all change rapidly and sometimes all at once. We aim to be there as an additional source of support at this critical time to veterans and their families helping them to get the help that they are eligible for.
The Veterans Contact Point Supports Service Personnel from all of our Armed Forces and we work alongside the other key partners, helping individuals of the Armed Forces, no matter the circumstances.
For more information or to learn how to become a volunteer visit www.veteranscontactpoint.co.uk, email:firstname.lastname@example.org or call 02476 343793.
