Veterans

Are you an Armed Forces Veteran?

2020 has been a difficult year for us all and, for many, a lonely time.

Do you miss being with friends who share your experiences?
Do you miss having a challenge?
Do you find yourself low in confidence?
Would you benefit from having people really listen to you? 

Funded by Veterans Foundation, the Macrobert Veterans Project is delivered with support from Stand Easy Productions, a Dundee based organisation who work with wounded, injured and sick ex-forces participants, using drama activities to help recovery.

You will work with a Drama Artist, Hannah Uttley, learning drama skills, with the focus on building your confidence, having fun, talking and listening, and socialising. 

Since our first Veterans project in 2018, we have worked with our participants to develop a creative, safe and supportive – but also challenging - environment. Spending time with other veterans and civilians, from talking things through with others who will listen and who will value your experience, views and feelings, you will gain a sense of achievement at having met the challenges offered. 

It must be stressed that no one has to perform, and throughout the process, if you are ever uncomfortable, there is always the option of stepping aside from the challenge at that moment.
