Veterans’ Health Week 2021


Supporting the health and wellbeing of veterans will be the key focus for this year’s Veterans’ Health Week being held from 16 October to 24 October 2021.

Events will also be held throughout the month to ensure there are multiple opportunities for the veteran community to take part.

Physical activity is an important contributor to emotional, mental and physical well-being. Veterans’ Health Week is a great opportunity for veterans and their families to get active and participate in events being run by the local working group.
