The Military Veterans Support Service was first thought of in November 2004 when the founder recognised
that there was no provision for supporting veterans of the armed forces in the local area and further afield.
The first meeting of the group was held in February 2009, under the name of the Rhondda Veterans Support Group making this the first independant
veterans support group dedicated to welfare of the veterans of the armed forces, and their families in South Wales despite claims made by other groups.
Since September 2009 we have steadily grown in numbers, and
offer support on various issues to the veterans
whether it is of social or psychological issues, benefits advice, pension advice and contacting other organisations to offer
further help, or just having someone to talk to, we will help in anyway we can.
In November 2011 we changed our
name to the Military Veterans Support Service to enable us to continue to offer a wider range of services to veterans within
the Rhondda Cynon Taff area, and further afield. Any use of the title Rhondda Veterans Support Group is not endorsed
by the Military Veterans Support Service and if done so is done illegally and without our permission.
In June 2012
the Military Veterans Support Service became a limited company, this will allow us to carry on with our work for veterans
health and wellbeing.
