Accessible Support for Veterans

Julie Naylor – Cafe Manager

Julie is the first point of contact for many at the Hub. She oversees all aspects of the Cafe and generally looks after us all! The Cafe welcomes everyone and is open to the public as well as service users.

David Baird – Mental Health and Exercise Coach

David provides free one-to-one sessions for ex service personnel which are designed to help improve mental and physical health. If you would like to find out more or would like a referral, then pop into the hub and speak to a member of the welfare team.

Natalie Summerfield – Volunteer Counsellor 

Natalie offers a free drop-in, listening service at the Veteran’s Hub on a Tuesday. You can pop in or arrange an informal, non-judgemental chat via Andy, our Facebook page or via telephone / email.

This is a confidential service in a safe space for anyone to discuss or share whatever they wish.

Jimmy  Levene – Paws 4 Thought

Jimmy runs this popular drop in session for service users and their dogs. Relax and have a brew with Jimmy for half an hour while the dogs sniff around off lead and enjoy some treats! Appointments can be made via the Hub.
