Veterans In Action are committed to helping veterans and their families grow through being involved in adventurous activities, projects and expeditions that help to rebuild their confidence, self-esteem and self-belief within an environment they understand and that understands them.
Veterans In Action is a Registered Charity No: 1128026
VIA ALIVE CENTRE
Veterans In Action’s ALIVE CENTRE is the charity HQ and is ideally set on a beautiful private estate seven miles from Andover on the Hampshire Wiltshire Border with beautiful walks through woodlands and the scenic Hampshire countryside. This environment helps to destress as soon as veterans enter the estate and veterans feel ‘safe’ and relaxed in the quiet of the countryside.
Veterans In Action projects are based on the decades old study of Post-Traumatic Growth where initially veterans can participate on tried and tested projects that enable them to grow within a team of their peers in what is their new mission here at home, helping themselves by helping others.
Veterans In Action Expeditions is an innovative, hands-on, approach to leadership initiative, personal growth, group dynamics, and expedition education. This tested and proven approach based on Wilderness Therapy, accommodates many of the conditions we find in VIA with service personnel suffering from mental health isues as well as those who have found the transition to civilian life difficult and works to help rebuild the veteran’s confidence, self-esteem and self-belief.
From the concept of Veterans In Action in 2008, it was evident that our success would only be possible if the veterans community and supporters of our armed forces came together to help create change. Over the years we have received incredible support to get us to where we are right now and in order to grow we encourage involvement in our projects, volunteering and fundraising to enable to help those who have given so much.
Consider joining us in one of the many ways to get involved!
