After the successful implementation of our Aged Veteran Welfare Support Projects in Greater Manchester and Avon & Somerset last year, we are delighted that this unique service is now also available to veterans in Herefordshire and Nottinghamshire.
DMWS has provided medical welfare support to the Armed Forces community for 75 years. With the number of aged veterans continuously growing, there is an increased demand for our professional service to support this community when they are receiving medical treatment. In response, DMWS now leads the project that sees 10 organisations deliver health and wellbeing support and activities to veterans aged 65 and over, their families and carers in Herefordshire and Nottinghamshire. The project has been funded by the Aged Veterans Fund and the grant awarded to DMWS subsidises welfare officers who will be embedded within NHS Trusts in the two counties.
