A SUPPORT group aimed at the relatives of war veterans has been launched in Swindon.

Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership’s South West Veterans' Service will offer emotional help to the families and partners of former soldiers at an initial session on Monday , January 13, at Sandalwood Court from 10am to 12pm.

A South West Veterans’ Mental Health Service spokesman said: “If you are a partner or family member of a veteran and would like some support for yourself then come along and help us to plan future groups.

“The session will be informal and friendly and there might even be cake.

“If you can't make the meeting we'd really like to hear your thoughts about the kind of support that would be helpful.”
