What is Remember Veterans?

Remember Veterans is jointly funded by the Armed Forces Covenant Trust and West Mercia Police and Crime Commissioner John Campion.

This service is for military veterans who are currently in, or are at risk of becoming involved in the criminal justice system. The service works closely with the veteran to develop an intensive 1:1 support plan which aims to enable the veteran to access sustainable, independent living whilst reducing the likelihood of offending/re-offending.
