IF you’re a veteran or family member of a veteran and living in South Wales, then professional arts organisation Re-Live might be for you.

The group has recently been awarded a grant for £51,000 from the Armed Forces Community Covenant for the Coming Home project, a 12-month creative programme for ex-Service personnel and their family members who are struggling with the transition to civilian life.

Alison O’Connor, co-director of Re-Live, said: “The Coming Home project is a space where people who are struggling with the transition back to civilian life can share experiences, in a supportive group environment.

“We know that taking the first step is often the hardest part, and we encourage any veteran and family members, whether you’ve just left the Service or served a while ago, to come along to our taster session in Cardiff on 17 July to find out more.”

When and where

The first part of the year-long project is a ten week creative programme which will take place in Chapter, Cardiff once a week between Sept and Nov 2015 on Thursdays 11am-3pm (family members) and Fridays 11am-3pm (veterans).

The project will be led by Alison O’Connor from Re-Live; Alison is a trained counsellor as well as creative group worker.
