WHAT
WE DO

Valley Veterans is a veteran-led organisation based in the heart of the Rhondda Valley.  Founded over 10 years ago as an informal support group for PTSD sufferers, Valley Veterans is now a vibrant hub with more than 140 active participants. 

Current organised activities include a weekly breakfast club that is hosted in the Ton Pentre Community Centre and attracts up to 60 veterans every Thursday and daily equine activities at the adjacent yard that attract up to a dozen regular daily participants.

Valley Veterans improves the mental and physical health and wellbeing of veterans through active participation in equine and horticultural activities. Veteran-led, and supported by mentors and industry partners, participants gain practical skills and experience to combat the challenges resulting from isolation and loneliness.
