Cardiff City FC Foundation have teamed up with the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust to create the Positive Pathways project.
Positive Pathways is a social isolation project that supports Armed Forces Veterans who are at high risk of social isolation and loneliness.
The project uses the power of Cardiff City FC to connect and support veterans around Cardiff, to reduce social isolation, loneliness and improve physical and mental wellbeing.
Wales has one of the largest proportions of veterans in the UK with 7% of all veterans currently living here. Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan has a veterans population of around 27,320 and 8% suffer from mental health issues including depression and anxiety.
Weekly online and face to face sessions provide structure and support for people to get together, connect and take part in a range of activates that improve physical and mental wellbeing.
Cardiff City FC Foundation, the official charity of Cardiff City FC are tackling social isolation and loneliness online during the pandemic.
