Ger Fowler, Founder, Director and CEO
As a veteran myself I know how important it is to have someone to help you to get back on your feet when you are down. I am delighted – and humbled – by the incredible response that VICS has already had, and I look forward to making a real difference to the lives of local veterans as the organisation grows.
