A SUPPORT group for York veterans has been launched.
The Military Veterans and Service Leavers Peer Support Group was set up by City of York Council and other agencies to provide support, advice and information to ex-service personnel and their families.
In the weekly sessions, experts and ex-service personnel will help visitors gain access to priority healthcare, housing and financial support they may be entitled to.
Jason Meek, Founder of the Peer Group said: “When I left the army I would have found a group like this invaluable. To have access to other ex-forces peers to offer advice about accommodation and medical issues in an informal environment would have been great.
