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.

Veterans are able to connect online and build on existing or create new relationships whilst accessing:
- Advice on how to stay active during lockdown
- Mental health awareness sessions
- CV writing support
- Organised day trips and events every 4-6 weeks
