    It’s a family, a band of brothers and sisters. I have no hesitation in recommending VICS to any veteran seeking help.

    MR

    I felt sick the first time I went to the Gunners. I didn’t sleep the night before and my stress was through the roof. But it was one of the best decisions of my life!

    PM

    Coming to VICS is the best move I ever made – I have made some brilliant friends and it has ended up like a massive family

    We would like to express our deep gratitude for the support and advice you provided to our family as we negotiated the Personal Independence Payment Tribunal procedure for our son.

    DS

    I just wanted to say thank you for your help and continued support with dad. Since working with you he has begun to engage on walks and voluntary projects which has got him out and about
