MAPS of West Tyrone is the official representative body for Military and Police Associations in the area.
We are primarily involved in the support and welfare of our members who served under Operation Banner. In many cases these are people who have been isolated after leaving service and because of that service have felt alienated within the Community.
We are run by members for our members thus having empathy with the beneficiaries. Our connection with the Royal British Legion is a benefit in the general welfare of those we serve, and we provide secure accommodation for them to work from.
As a welfare and support organisation for an ageing section of the Community we aim to provide a place of refuge in comfortable surroundings, a place that members can call their own and get away from the strains of daily life. Our befriending service is the backbone of the organisation. The confidential work they do with members cannot be underestimated.
Useful key words:
- Ex-security services community
- Ex-services community
- Isolation issues
This organisation receives support from the Victims Support Programme for Groups Working with Victims and Survivors, to deliver some or all of the services that it provides. Its views do not necessarily reflect those of the Victims and Survivors Service.
