Veterans Places, Pathways & People
What is VPPP?
With great thanks to The Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust, Broughton House – Veteran Care Village has been chosen as the project lead for the North West in a campaign to ensure that there are connected pathways for veterans, that there are safe places to go which connect into these pathways and that volunteers and staff supporting veterans, have access to training and work closely with other organisations within veterans mental health pathways.
The North West Armed Forces Wellbeing Network will work for the collective benefit of all organisations supporting the Armed Forces community across Cheshire, Merseyside, Greater Manchester, Lancashire and Cumbria.

Mission, Vision, Aims & Values
To promote understanding and awareness of mental health provisions and pathways within the North West region so that all members of the Armed Forces community receive the same experience regardless of the provider.
To ‘level up’ provision by enabling organisations, professionals and volunteers across public, statutory and third sector services to collaborate and ensure quality of delivery in supporting ex-service personnel, their families and carers. This will be underpinned by five key pillars: Governance & Quality Assurance, Monitoring & Evaluation, Sustainability & Collaboration, Workforce/Skills Development and Veterans’ Voice.
Promote an ex-service person-centred approach and streamline service delivery
Improve ways of working and collaboration through a strong, inclusive and supportive network
Clearly define pathways of wellbeing support across the North West
Develop a bank of toolkits, training and development packages to ensure our services are within the framework of due diligence and quality assurance
Create a North West Armed Forces Wellbeing Network Theory of Change
