Restorative Approaches Veterans and Family Services

How can we help?

Our service, funded by The Armed Forces Covenant Trust Fund and the Veterans’ Foundation, provides support for Veterans and their families who are seeking help to deal with difficulties within family relationships.

What we do

We deliver a programme of group workshops that Veterans and their families can attend with other families. Group workshops are run regularly, so please contact us if you would like to know dates for our next programme!

In addition to the group workshops, Veterans and their families are offered facilitated individual family sessions with the aim of supporting them to:

  • Identify their strengths and communicate in a way that identifies their needs
  • Explore and jointly find solutions that enable needs to be met and help everyone affected to move forward
  • More effectively manage conflict (that can often lead to family breakdown if left unaddressed)
  • Seek specialist services when needed

Our service is uniquely placed as we work alongside both Veteran-focused services and universal/non-military services (including statutory and voluntary).

Currently, all provision is facilitated through remote, live online sessions via Zoom or Teams etc, and we encourage self-referrals from Veterans and their family members, as well as from professionals.

Please get in touch if you can answer ‘Yes’ to any of the following:

  • You are a Veteran or Service Leaver (there is no time limit restriction as to when you left service).
  • You feel that you are experiencing difficulties in family relationships which are causing issues for you and/or anyone in your family.
  • There is at least one child that is a member of your family – whether you live with them or there is separation.

We look forward to hearing from you!
