Derby County Veterans Activity Programme



Derby County Community Trust have secured funding to run a 12 month programme around physical activity, reminiscence (sporting and armed forces material) and intergeneration programmes for ex-service personal and their family, friends and/or carers. In addition we would also like to develop and run a befriending service for those who feel isolated and lonely.

The programme is free of charge for anyone in Derby or Derbyshire to attend and will offer a range of sessions across the city and county, including sessions delivered at DCFC stadium. We will work with those living in both the community and those who are in care homes.

The aim is to launch the programme in June 2017 and Sharon Dale, who is leading this initiative, would welcome the opportunity to come along to RBL branches in both the city and across the county to discuss the programme, get any thoughts/ideas from potential participants, families and friend to support the development and delivery of the programme. If you would like Sharon to come along and talk to your members please get in touch with her direct and copy me in.
