Activity-packed Hafal Members’ Days will celebrate FORCES for CHANGE campaign

Our two regional Hafal Members’ Days will be held in November, each celebrating the hugely successful veteran-led campaign FORCES for CHANGE – and providing a packed day of activities for service users and carers.

The regional Members’ Days take place at:-

  • South Wales – The Liberty Stadium, Swansea: 2nd November, 10am – 2pm
  • North Wales – Venue Cymru, Llandudno: 22nd November, 10am – 2pm.

The programme for each event includes:-

  • An update from Elin Jones, Chair of Trustees and Alun Thomas, Chief Executive
  • Members’ Survey – giving Members the opportunity to influence future service delivery and developments across Wales
  • Managing your Finances – practical advice and guidance on a range of issues relating to money and mental health for service users and carers delivered by Hafal’s Money & Mental Health Advice Service team
  • Carers Matter – An update on priority concerns for carers
  • Members’ Question Time – an opportunity for Hafal Members to ask questions and provide feedback directly to Hafal’s Trustees and Senior Management Team.

Guests will also have the opportunity to network and share experiences; visit the interactive display showcasing Hafal services across Wales; learn more about Hafal’s new online community ‘Clic’, and take part in an art workshop.

Chief Executive Alun Thomas said: “Following Hafal’s recent merger with Hafal Crossroads, we now have an even broader Membership across Wales. In recognition of this growth we are holding the two regional Members’ Days which Members have been invited to attend.

“We would like to ensure that our Members in each part of the country have the opportunity to meet with Trustees and staff, and to hear about our services and developments. So we are very excited about the new and more accessible regional Members’ Days.

“Guests will have the chance to get together, have their say and celebrate the fantastic work that is going on in all areas of Wales. And, of course, we’ll be celebrating our 2017 campaign for veterans – FORCES for CHANGE – which has included 24 events throughout the summer.”
