The Kent and Medway Armed Forces Network are rolling out the award winning Champions Training from the Sussex Armed Forces Network.
This an opportunity to undertake a fun, informative and varied educational day raising awareness of the needs of veterans in our communities and helping you to establish a support network of Service Champions in Kent and Medway.
The day will involve some activity (bring comfy shoes!). The course is part of our new mental health programme to ensure all those who have served in our armed forces, along with those that care and live with veterans, have access to all the services and advice they require. They day particularly aims to give attendees an understanding of service life and equip you with networking information so that signposting and the support veterans require is easier to access. The day will also be attended by those working in social care and supporting agencies that can offer a support network to those that work in health care so we begin to effectively join up social and health care for this group of patients.
