Join us to chat with Graeme Stevenson and members of the UK Based organisation: Veterans in Communities
Veterans in Communities (VIC) supports ex-service personnel and their families to return, belong and prosper within the civilian community. VIC’s many activities and projects have been designed and developed by our veteran members who have experienced some difficulty themselves. Our activities and projects are designed to increase confidence, self-esteem, and motivation by our unique peer support model. We also give the opportunity for our members to learn new skills and experiences from each other.
The VIC art group is now a well-established group and provides a form of relaxation therapy. There is provision for classes and workshops around arts and crafts using the different painting styles and materials.
The aim of the VAO (Veterans Arts Organisation) Facebook group is to provide veterans and their families an opportunity to display their work nationwide through social media. Displaying work for others to see, increases self-esteem, provides opportunities to seek advice, support and encouragement from other artists.
