GIVING BACK TO
THOSE WHO HAVE SERVED US
When people who have served in the armed forces return to civilian life, they can often find it hard to adjust.
We support and run a number of projects across the East Lancashire region that helps veterans connect with others in a similar situation, avoid feelings of loneliness and isolation and improve their overall health and wellness.
Veterans have the chance to engage with other members of the armed forces community, engage with BFCitC and find out more about opportunities and activities happening in Burnley and East Lancashire. Veterans can also engage in many of our organised activities, events and trips.
BFCitC have engaged with over 300 local military veterans to improve all forms of health for those within the armed forces community.
This has been in the form of trips to other breakfast clubs and museums, health workshops, organised lunches, outdoor activity days and much more!
