The VCP was informed recently that they were unsuccessful in their application to be the Midlands Lead for the above programme. Although disappointing news for the Charity and the other 6 Organisations and Charities who had expressed their interest in working with the VCP, business goes on as normal. We have thanked them all for their support and their willingness to work with the Veterans Contact Point, many hope that although funding was approved, that the network and partnership that was developed can continue to support each organisation and veterans accessing services. We await notification of the successful Midlands Lead.
We are pleased to continue to be there for Veterans from across Coventry, Solihull and Warwickshire and currently we are providing a safe space for 20-30 veterans each week across our three hubs in North Warwickshire supplying brew and banter. On Monday, we provided the venue for Op Courage’s Veterans Complex Treatment Service Team away day with one of our talented veterans cooking a Nepalese Curry Lunch for them. As always feedback was very positive which is always good to hear.
