Event Summary

Saturday 3rd of August will see the opening of Dunfermline first Armed Forces & Veterans Breakfast Club at Taste Café and Sandwich Bar, Pitreavie Court, Pitreavie Business Park, Queensferry Road, KY11 8UU. From 9am to 12pm.

Isolation and PTSD play a major part in the lives of Veterans and although the AFVBC does not offer support, it can be the starting point for many to be pointed in the right direction.

The AFVBC is not and will never be a charity. That is not the aim of the club, with thousands of charities out there already, the AFVBC is about camaraderie, banter and the sense of belonging, something that many Veterans in particular feel they are missing out on.

The Dunfermline AFVBC is part of a network of Breakfast Clubs that run the length and breadth of the country that offer “the missing link” for many from a forces background who are adjusting to life in civvy street and at present there are nearly 250 clubs.

The club offers a new circle of comrades as well as being able to offer the same support to all arms of Her Majesties Armed Forces, who feel that they have lost what they found within their “service family”.

Breakfast Clubs have apparently already drawn the attention of Prince Harry while he was visiting a development to house homeless veterans in Newcastle and the success of these clubs are beginning to make people sit up and realise that something is lacking in the care for those who have served their country.

All administrators are volunteers, who manage the Facebook Groups in our spare time for no financial gain or compensation. First and foremost the clubs are there for their members and there is no membership fee or obligation to attend.
