The Centre is over two floors with the first floor consisting of a “1940” style café. This is for use by the community, veterans and Emergency Workers to use. Its focus is to promote the interaction of Veterans in the community and assist with mental health and well-being.
Upstairs is phase two and the next project. This will consist of a large meeting/focus room which can be used by agencies. There will also be a therapist / counselling room for one to one or group activities for veterans and EW. The vision is for the centre to be a first contact point for a veteran/EW in need of assistance. With a committee of local and national agencies at hand, the service user will get the help and guidance required.
A business plan has just been submitted to expand to the unit next door to give a wider service to veterans/community and EW.
