Ringwood Library has recently launched a Veterans Hub Drop-In, welcoming all service leavers. The Hub meets every Thursday with two sessions, each providing a different aspect: between 10:00-12:00, we meet to discuss shared experiences, participate in activities (such as a monthly cooked brunch!) and access any help and information as needed.

Currently, during the afternoon from 14:00-16:00, the focus is on a relaxed, scale model making activity, provided, courtesy of Models for Heroes. This is all completely free and focuses on providing a warm and welcoming place for our local Veterans, with no need to book. This Drop-In Hub is registered with ASDIC, supported by SSAFA and is initially funded by the Armed Forces Covenant Fund: Force for Change programme.

In the future, they are looking to host an afternoon session for LGBTQ+ Veterans and welcome your thoughts and ideas around how this might run, for example, how often you would like the group to come together or at what time in the afternoon. They are keen to expand the existing program of services, such as hosting partner organisations, activities, trips out, free courses and more for this group, but most of all, they would like to provide like-minded companionship in a safe and friendly environment.

If you require more information or would like to help us in this venture, don’t hesitate to contact India from Ringwood Library at india.parker@hants.gov.uk.
