Our Bridge 'drop in' Centre is open daily for the Armed Forces Community - Veterans, service leavers, ex-serving personnel, widows, dependants, reservists and their families

Calling all Female Veterans!

At The Bridge for Heroes, our commitment to providing support extends to all of the Armed Forces community, and we are particularly eager to create an inclusive environment for our female veterans. We understand that the challenges faced by women in the Armed Forces are diverse, and we aim to provide a space where these experiences can be shared, understood, and supported.

Recent research has suggested that existing veteran support services are perceived as male-dominated and male-targeted, and fail to consider the needs of female veterans. With this in mind, we want to ensure that our services and spaces are suitably developed and supportive of the needs of women veterans.

As an organisation, we use the term ‘veteran’ to apply to anyone who has served for at least one day in His (or Her) Majesty’s Armed Forces (Regular or Reserve), and it is this definition that makes you eligible to access our services. Whether you have recently transitioned to civilian life or have been navigating this journey for some time, we are here to help. We recognise that you have a unique perspective of military service and experience of the Armed Forces community so let us know what we can do to help you!

Here are a few reasons why you might consider joining The Bridge for Heroes:

1.Supportive network – connect with other female veterans who have some understanding of your lived experience.

2.Tailored Support Services – we want to respond to your needs and offer the guidance and support that will best serve you. We are committed to addressing your needs, whether that’s through offering a direct service or signposting or referring to other agencies.

3.Empowering Programmes and Events – from workshops to social gatherings, we are looking to organise events that empower and inspire. Our goal is to create a platform for female veterans to showcase their skills, share their stories and participate in activities that promote personal growth and well-being.

4.Opportunities to Volunteer – if you are passionate about contributing to the Armed Forces community, we offer a variety of volunteer roles where you can make a meaningful impact. Your skills and experiences are valuable assets that can contribute to the well-being of fellow veterans.

5.Providing a Safe Space – We are committed to providing a safe space. Whether you are looking for counselling, want to participate in therapeutic activities, or simply want to make connections, our doors are open to support your well-being.

The Bridge for Heroes believes in the strength that comes from diversity and inclusivity. We invite you to join us in building a community that celebrates the unique contributions of each individual. Your stories matter, and your presence enriches the fabric of our collective experience. Come along to The Bridge for Heroes, where support, and camaraderie await. Together, we can create a space that uplifts and empowers all those within the Armed Forces community.
