What is Change Step?

Delivered by veterans for veterans, Change Step offers peer mentoring and help to access relevant services — including support with mental health, substance misuse, criminal justice and housing issues.

Our peer mentors deliver support at drop-in locations throughout Wales, plus activities and one-on-one support, while dedicated staff work with veterans’ families.

Who is Change Step for?

We help anyone who has been a member of the UK Armed Forces.

We can also provide practical and confidential support for family members or carers — either alongside or independently of the veteran.

What can Change Step offer?

  • a contact point for veterans, their families and carers, with help to access other services
  • community-based peer mentoring delivered by veterans for veterans
  • training and volunteering opportunities

Our community-based activities and volunteering opportunities provide a therapeutic and social outlet, allowing participants to develop new skills and pick up formal qualifications.
