A new project designed to support the mental health and wellbeing of veterans is being launched in May 2019 and you have the opportunity to get involved.

The Positive Pathways Programme is a new project under the Armed Forces Covenant to support veterans and Armed Forces Charities.

In the Autumn 2018 Budget, the Chancellor Of The Exchequer devoted £10 million to support the mental health and wellbeing of veterans.

This has been divided into two distinct funds. £1 million is being used to support large projects and £9 million has been earmarked to provide activities designed to support veterans suffering from mental health issues.

There are a variety of different activities that can offer veterans the chance to develop new skills and give them a sense of achievement.
