Veterans pilot project

Calling the armed forces community, charities and professionals working in Epsom & Ewell !

Surrey County Council are developing pilot projects in Surrey Heath, Epsom & Ewell and Guildford to identify and support veterans and ex-service personnel who are not known to Adult Social Care or Armed Forces Charities.

They would like to invite them to take part in group activities and the opportunity to record their life stories to help reduce isolation, increase friendships and if needed signpost them to additional support.

As part of this project, they are also keen to identify veterans and ex-service personnel living in residential care, nursing homes or who are receiving care in the community.

Surrey County Council Adult Social Care in Epsom & Ewell are working with Surrey Heritage, Bourne Hall Museum and armed forces charities to deliver this project. The pilot is funded by The Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust.
