Conwy Armed Forces Champion Cllr Liz Roberts has laced up her boots to show her backing for Change Step’s #VeteransShoes social media campaign.

The chair of Conwy County Borough Council became the latest local authority champion to be snapped with heavy duty footwear when she visited the Change Step office in Colwyn Bay last week.

“I’m very pleased to support the Change Step #VeteransShoes campaign as the Armed Forces Champion for Conwy,” she said.

The fundraising and awareness raising campaign challenges civvies and members of armed forces families to demonstrate their support for veterans by walking a mile in their shoes, donating to our project, and sharing their funny snaps.

Change Step operates throughout Wales, using a network of ex-forces peer mentors and volunteers to provide veteran-to-veteran support and guidance.

Our mentors offer comradeship, camaraderie and an enhanced understanding of the issues faced by service users – enabling us to deliver more effective interventions.

Problems experienced by former members of the forces can include post-traumatic stress disorder, isolation and loneliness, amongst a wide range of psychosocial issues.
