New funding secures future for ‘life changing’ veterans’ support programme

A mental wellbeing support programme for military veterans, created by Loughborough University and the Royal Air Forces Association, has secured further funding.

The investment by the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust means six new residential programmes for former members of all three military services – the Royal Navy, British Army and Royal Air Force – can take place at the campus over the next two years.

For the programme small groups of veterans will visit Loughborough for a two-day stay, where they will take part in range of activities, including social resilience workshops, practical healthy cooking lessons, sessions on improving sleep quality and team-based physical activity such as wheelchair basketball, walking football and pilates.

All the activities have been specifically designed to enhance the mental wellbeing of attendees.
