Transitioning from service life to Civvy Street can be difficult even in the best circumstances. But for those who are wounded, injured, or sick, the change from their familiar way of life can become a real struggle.
SSAFA mentors can be invaluable during this time. Offering non-judgmental advice and a listening ear, they aim to ensure these vulnerable men and women who have given so much, are given exactly what they need to succeed post service.
We’re looking for more dedicated mentors to join our team. After all they’ve given to us, please help us give back.
Join SSAFA as a mentor today: http://buff.ly/2oiZArY

A chance to see the local sights as you’ve never seen them before, the amazing Poole Harbour BIG Wheel is set to open this month in Harbourside Park as the start of Poole Maritime Festival and the free Seven Seas family festival.
Also opening is The HarBar, a shipping container converted into a bar alongside the BIG Wheel attraction.
The 35-metre high Poole Harbour BIG Wheel opens on Friday 28 April with rides available seven days a week for four weeks. It culminates in the free family fun of the Seven Seas Festival with its celebration of the world’s food, music and culture, running for three days and two nights from 19 to 21 May.
The Seven Seas Festival promises a weekend of family-friendly international food, music and culture in partnership with Poole Maritime Festival, bringing a world of seafaring sounds, tastes and traditions to Harbourside Park.
The site will be divided into micro-sites, each representing one of the seven seas and programmed with the music, food and culture of that region. At the heart of the festival is the Maritime Event Arena where every aspect of seafaring life in Poole is represented, from the festival’s four partner charities – RNLI, Julia’s House, Diverse Abilities and Greenpeace – to performances by local schools, circus and fire shows and even the odd sea shanty.
For the youngest visitors there’s the Ikle eskimos activities arena and the Harry Rocks main stage area will host live music in the evening from iconic tribute bands and crowd-pleasing local acts.
The Poole Harbour BIG Wheel will operate daily, noon-8pm (Sun-Thurs), 10am-10pm (Fri, Sat).
Wheel is OPEN 28th APRIL 2017 - 21st May 2017.
