In June 2020 we lost our wonderful patron Dame Vera Lynn (DBE), and in her memory we will continue to be a light in the darkness for all those who have suffered trauma, especially from war.
The light she shone for so many will never fade, just as we remember all who have fallen over the years, and all those who have suffered trauma regardless of how it was caused.
Come inside and wrap yourself up with the words we have gathered together.
FLOW for ALL (FLOW) is a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO) whose registered number is SC050666.

A word from our patron...
“Through my own experiences in talking with the boys and girls about their thoughts on war and how they felt about going into action many would just shrug; "it's what we are trained to do" they would say. For most their thoughts are so personal, and even for the most articulate often difficult to put into words without aggrandizement. Yet through poetry they express themselves with absolute clarity, deep feeling and simplicity. I only have to read the poem "In Flanders Field" by Lt Col John McCrae or Kipling's "Tommy" to fully appreciate and be thankful for the beauty of Forces Poetry. To see this tradition still flourishing in the fertile minds of today's young men and women of our armed forces is gratifying and humbling. They leave us such a precious legacy which is matched by their courage, honour and duty. We must never forget them.”Dame Vera LynnOur Patron
