Involve Northwest are pleased to welcome AMMO (All Military Members Organisation for veterans), who have recently landed at their HQ at Royal Standard House in Rock Ferry.
"AMMO is a not-for-profit organisation that has been conceived to give support to Military Veterans from all Arms and of all ages with their transition to civilian life. AMMO does not have all the answers but it may know someone who has. AMMO is manned by ex service volunteers who have walked the walk. So if you have an issue, whether it is work, benefits, CV writing or drug/alcohol misuse, pop in and have a coffee. Fairy dust is in short supply, but there is lots of help and support available."
For more information, you can visit their website, visit their Facebook page or contact them at Involve Northwest HQ on 0151 644 1100.
