Woody's Lodge Respite Care

Woody’s Lodge is a Wales based Armed Forces Charity that offers safe and quiet social spaces for ex-service men and women and their families. We extend our support to those currently serving, those within the Armed Forces Reserves and now engage with the Emergency Services.

Currently based at two main hubs at The Amelia Farm, near Barry, South Wales and at Eirias Park, Colwyn Bay, North Wales, we wish to develop two further countryside sites in West and East Wales.

Support for Veterans

Woodys is also developing a network of urban based Drop-in-Centres for “town living” veterans, with seven sited in principal towns in North Wales and a further four to open in South Wales in 2020. Woody’s Support Officers specialise in enabling veterans to access benefits, pensions and housing, via one on one engagement where they support the individual/family through each stage of these often complicated processes until a successful outcome is achieved. A central part of their work leads them to engage with other Armed Forces Support, Public Support and Statutory Agencies, through this we are able to signpost our users to specialist organisations.

A Partnership Built to Last

“We are delighted to work with and provide the space and sites for “UK Veterans Hearing Foundation” so that veterans visiting Woodys can access directly, the specialist help they require in regaining their hearing.” We hope as Woodys Networks increases across Wales that those working at UK Veterans Hearing Foundation can increase their reach to veterans requiring their specialist support.

Help Us Fit More Veterans!

Since becoming a charity, we have managed to fit over 100 veterans with top-class hearing aids! However, we still have more than 1,500 veterans who need our help in getting back to a normal standard of life after the hearing damage they received in their years of service. Any donations we receive are a huge help in the lives of our vets and we are eternally grateful for whatever you may be able to spare.
