After more than a year of closure Warwickshire’s only Local Military Charity reopened its doors to provide support to our Armed Forces Community. The opening event on the 9th October by Lord Dannatt helped to reinforce and recognise the important role played by The Veterans Contact Point to Veterans, The Serving Armed Forces Community, Local Authorities, Criminal Justice, Military Charities, Local Businesses and the wider Community from across the Warwickshire, Coventry & Solihull areas.
With nearly 100 delegates, hosted by Balfour Beatty, Warwickshire County Council and The Veterans Contact Point, were given the opportunity to look around this fantastic “Giving Back” project.
The project was supported by Warwickshire County Council, Balfour Beatty and it Supply Chain and The Veterans Contact Point.
A proud day for Veterans and the Volunteers & Staff who give so freely of their time and resources, to be gifted with a fantastic resource to support the efforts made daily to ensure ” No one gets left behind”. It is anticipated that the Veterans Contact Point will now also be able to provide a social arena for the Armed Forces Community, Serving & Veterans, who will be able to access a modern building fit for purpose and in providing a warm and welcoming arena for more than just access to support services.
