Happy St Davids day! And please find the new South East Veterans Dairy for March here:   http://www.smpl.org.uk/veterans-hubs-diary/  (or click on the tab above!) Hope to see you at one or more of the events? 



The Surrey Armed Forces Covenant Conference 2019 was held (06.02.19) at ATR Pirbright and celebrated the achievements of the Covenant and sharing best practice. The Forces Connect South East – Veterans Hubs team ran a workshop to help identify ways of reaching “Hard to Reach” members of the veterans community (and thank you for everybody’s support). A big part of the day was about service children and the challenges to ensure that that are not disadvantaged by their parents career choices. We were impressed by the care, enthusiasm and hard work that those involved from Cadets to Head Teachers evidenced!


What Veterans Want to be Called



Forces Connect South East – Veterans Hubs Project 

Veterans Hubs or Veterans Drop-Ins offer a wide variety of welfare and mental health support to the ex-military community and their families we are supporting them to enhance the services provided and make them more accessible. This project supports the work of ASDIC across the South East and we would be delighted to hear from any of you  who would like to advise and support us moving forward. Our first report to be published will arrive in October.



What is ASDIC all about?  

The SMPL team are supporting The Association of ex-Service Drop-In Centres (ASDIC) that links veterans’ Drop-Ins together across the country.

Dear Roger,

Just wanted to thank you again for coming to the office to ‘Twitter Talk’ me last week.  I’ve managed to set myself up with Hootsuite, which will do us very nicely for now!
