Project 360 Supporting Older Military Veterans
Help us build a picture of the needs and aspirations of veterans in Wales aged 65 or over
The deadline for research into the needs of veterans in Wales is fast approaching but there is still time to get involved.
Project 360° is a partnership formed from Age Cymru, the veteran’s charity Woody’s Lodge, and Age Alliance Wales. We would like to invite anyone who was in any of the armed forces in Wales and aged 65 or over; to help us better understand their day to day lives so we can improve the services they need, through the project partners.
We can also come out to speak to local groups or organisations. Please get in contact on 029 2043 1555 or at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange this.
Unpaid carers amongst armed forces veterans – tell us about your life
The project also wants to know what would improve the quality of life for veterans aged 65 or over who are unpaid carers. In our initial research we found one third of the people we spoke to looked after someone as an unpaid carer.
We have produced a specific questionnaire for veteran unpaid carers and their partners to help us in our crucial research.
The deadline for our research is 29 March 2019
