MILITARY PEER MENTOR
My name is Tim Phillips aged 50, I am a Veteran of 23 years in The Army, I am married with 4 adult children, I have served in various parts of the world moving my family around with me to some postings including Mainland UK, Germany to as far afield as Hong Kong, USA, Canada, with also 2 years served in Northern Ireland and 3, 6-month Operational tours of Iraq completed.
Being able to break down social isolation, for me is very rewarding being a veteran. Going into to Care homes community centers, holding breakfast clubs, etc, and meeting different veterans is very interesting. For the veterans who live independently within the community, I think they take comfort in knowing that there are other veterans locally out there who will listen, chat, and knowing that there is a support network and meetings with likeminded people available.
We help service veterans and those in the wider community by getting them engaged in a variety of art projects. We passionately believe that art and culture can improve health, wellbeing and overall quality of life.
