Change Step has been saved by a £500,000 Budget windfall! The service is across Wales supporting veterans with drug and alcohol issues. Kaleidoscope is a proud partner in the delivery of this service with DACW partners and CAIS as the lead agency.
The money from the Treasury will provide peer support and tailored specialist intervention for 800 Welsh veterans. Change Step was set up with almost £1m from the Ministry of Defence Libor fund three years ago.
About 1,000 veterans and their families have been supported by the charity’s team of veteran peer mentors, dealing with mental health issues, loneliness, welfare or addiction problems.
