Local Associations and Regional Centres
The Veteran’s Association is geographically split into ‘Local Associations’ who provide social activities for Veterans and Sainsbury’s retired colleagues in their area. Activities are organised by members and can include:
• Regular gatherings
• Days Out (Places of interest/seaside etc)
• Weekend Breaks
• Golf Societies
• Quiz Nights
For more information on your local association go to ‘Regions’ and click on the link for your nearest region.
If your area is not currently covered by a local association, please contact the Regional Chairs.
The Veterans Association runs a Visitors Scheme.
The aim of the Veterans Visitor is to keep a friendly, informal, personal contact with Veterans of the Company.
To make sure that HR Services Admin or Local Association is informed as soon as possible should a Veteran find themselves in need of help or assistance.
