About the Event

This is 3 of 3! Last Call!  Calling All Women Veterans! Use Your Voice, Shape the Future!

We invite you to be part of an innovative and inclusive discussion that will amplify your voice and bring about positive change in support services designed specifically for you.

At The V Word and through the VISIBLE series and #WeSeeYou movement, we are committed to hearing your stories, sharing your stories, understanding your unique journey’s as well as our communities’ individual needs.

That’s why we were delighted to be approached to present these events in on our platform and jumped (well half skipped bad knees and we are all tipping the 40+ scales in years now!). So yeah, we did a dodgy skip/happy dance at the opportunity to be involved in driving the #womenveterans agenda that little bit further forward down the road of positive, impactful change.

There will be 3 focus groups over the next month, all virtual, each will be approximately 90 mins starting at 1900 Hrs on the following dates:

• 26th June 2023

• 4th July 2023

• 25th July 2023

As the premise of these events are to facilitate discussion and we all know how popular The V Word webinars and workshops have become (with over 76 attendees at the last webinar and over 100 signed for the next!) we will be limiting attendance in these groups hence why we are hosting 3.

All groups will focus on addressing the crucial aspects of support and advocating for improvements that matter to you.


Who will be facilitating each event and is a fellow veteran, former marine engineer, the brainchild behind this whole initiative, absolute powerhouse, phenomenal advocate for all within the armed forces community, general all round good egg AND the Scottish Veterans Commissioner (Drum Roll Please!) Susie Hamilton!

We are genuinely honoured to have Susie Hamilton, the Scottish Veterans Commissioner, join forces with The V Word for this series of focus groups. With her extensive military background and in-depth understanding of veterans' issues, she like us, is dedicated to making a positive impact on the lives of women veterans.

Susie will actively listen to your concerns, experiences, and suggestions for better support.

Event Highlights:

- Thought-provoking panel discussions and interactive workshops

- Networking opportunities with fellow women veterans and experts in the field.

- Keynote address by Susie Hamilton, sharing her insights and vision for the future.

- Resources and information on support services tailored for women veterans.

- Nourishing refreshments (supplied by you obviously as its virtual, but yes feel free to bring snacks! Ha-ha) and a supportive environment.

This is your chance to be heard, to make a difference, and to contribute to the advancement of support services for women veterans. Seize the opportunity to shape the future of veteran care in a way that truly reflects your needs and aspirations.

Limited spaces are available, so secure your spot today and make your voice heard!
