Event description: Shropshire Council is inviting people to the next Armed Forces Outreach Support service session at Palmers Cafe.
Launched earlier this year, the relaxed and friendly sessions are held on the first and third Monday of every month and are open to military personnel, veterans and their families.
On the day, those attending will be able to listen to a talk at 11am from West Mercia Police’s Shropshire Rural and Business Crime Officer, Graham Donaldson, focusing on cybercrime, scams, ID theft and home security.
There will also be an opportunity to get support and advice on housing, healthcare, education, employment, finance and benefits and well-being from a range of local businesses, charities and other organisations which have shown an interest in supporting the military, or simply join in some banter.
The outreach service has made possible through the Armed Forces Covenant Grant Scheme – a scheme that gives financial support to local projects which strengthen the ties and mutual understanding between members of the Armed Forces community and the wider community in which they live.
The outreach service has initially been supported by RBL, SSAFA, Combat Stress, Walking with the Wounded and Shropshire Council, but the service will be working closely with a number of other charities, and local organisations and businesses moving forward.
