We provide a confidential and free service for veterans and their families living and working in Coventry and Warwickshire.
We will work with you to help you obtain the right support from those who can best help you —when you need it and for as long as you need it.
The Veterans Contact Point will support you to progress your work and life and help you to move forward, maybe for the first time since leaving the military.
We offer a specialist service to veterans who have come into contact with the Police, Probation or Prison Services or who have a criminal record.
We will act as a gateway to other agencies and sources of support. We are there for veterans their families and dependents who experience any issues moving from life in the military to living as a civilian in the community.
If you have served for one day or more in the Armed Forces as a Regular, Territorial, Reserves or Merchant Navy (in support of military operations), you are a veteran.
“Approximately 9.5 million people in the UK are eligible for support from The Royal Brit-ish Legion” (Source: The Royal British Legion Website: www.britishlegion.org.uk)
