Welcome to the first edition of West Wales Veterans Newsletter

In this first addition we will be looking at some of the new organisations that have opened their doors to helping and supporting veterans within the three counties of West Wales.

We have many veterans in our communities who have received good quality help from organisations such as the British Legion and SSAFA and without them many veterans and their families situations would not have improved. However it is so good to see that in the last two years other third sector organisations have set up various projects to help and support veterans and their families. It has also been great to see that all three councils have signed up to the Armed Forces Community Covenant.

For so many years now our armed forces have been involved in various conflicts and I believe this has taken its toll on many military personnel, whether its a struggle to settle back into civvy street, or someone with various physical injuries or someone experiencing mental health problems due to active service.

So in this edition, we will be introducing some of the organisations that have started to engage with various veterans within our three counties. We will be producing this newsletter three times a year so there will be plenty of opportunity for all to tell us there story or explain the service they provide.

We would love to hear from veterans and organisations as to what they would like to see and read within the newsletter, this is community newsletter so please feel free to get involved.
