New charity website for veterans and their families

by KMBC

The JohnPaul Project, a charity based in Knowsley, which provides support to veterans and their families across the Liverpool City Region has launched a new website.

The charity aims to improve the emotional wellbeing of veterans through counselling and support programmes.

It was set up following the tragic death of JohnPaul Finnigan in May 2018, a soldier from Huyton who took his own life after he struggled to adjust to civilian life following his medical discharge from the Army and a long battle with Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

The charity’s ultimate aim is to reduce the incidence of veterans taking their own lives.

The website details the range of support available and how veterans and their families can access the programmes and services.

The JohnPaul Project is managed and coordinated by the registered charity Caring Connections which has over 27 years’ experience of supporting vulnerable groups and reducing social isolation across Merseyside.
