BDP Launches New Veteran’s Support Service

2 minute read

Working with the Royal British Legion, Bristol Drugs Project have launched Veteran’s Independence from Problematic Substances (VIPs), a new project to offer support to veterans who want to access veteran specific drug or alcohol treatment.

I am excited to be part of the new Veteran’s Independence from Problematic Substances (VIPs) project, working in partnership with, and funded by the Royal British Legion. This is an opportunity to work with the Veteran community and offer support to people who have not yet accessed drug or alcohol treatment. This may be working to reduce harm, getting someone into a treatment programme, or  accessing detox and rehab. The great part of this role is that I can be flexible, so can offer 1-1s or group sessions and work collaboratively with RBL and Veterans to make positive changes. We will be running a weekly Information session every Thursday 11pm-1pm at the RBL Pop-in in Broadmead Bristol, where any  Veteran or concerned family members can drop in for information or support.

– Abbie, Veteran Case Worker


This weekly drop in session runs every Thursday 11.00 – 1.00pm at The Royal British Legion, 60 Union Street, Bristol.

For more information please call 0117 987 6000 or email VIPS@bdp.org.uk.
