To better serve the needs of our nuclear community we developed a bid for the Aged Veterans Fund to finance the production of an entirely new magazine from the Nuclear Community Charity Fund that will incorporate all the exciting things happening and keep you completely up to date with the latest developments.Launched as an entirely independent charity, the NCCF is the singular organisation for our Nuclear Community. Only the NCCF is leading and developing great projects across the spectrum of issues we face.
The creation and management of the Care Wellbeing and Inclusion Fund (CWI Fund) is providing much-needed help to ease suffering amongst Veterans, their Spouses, Children, Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren.
The legacy of the tests passing through our germline causing illness and suffering through the generations is a sad situation we all have to live with but by using the CWI Fund we can make that difference to the neediest and because of the way we have structured the fund this help will be available for at least the next 15 years.
The establishment of the Centre for Health Effects of Radiological and Chemical Agents (CHRC) at Brunel University London bringing together all the research and knowledge about our community, identifying where the gaps are in that knowledge and propagating research to bridge those gaps providing a complete scientific, policy and educational resource to the benefit of our community.
The delivery of the Remembrance project, refurbishing our memorials and linking them to a virtual museum preserving our heritage for years to come, connecting generations and bridging all our projects to ensure we will not be forgotten.
The OBSIVEN initiative linking Nuclear and Chemical survivor communities across the globe to share experience on research, litigation and publicity enhancing the efforts of our international community to obtain proper recognition and support.
These are all very exciting and hugely important changes within our world and the new magazine will reflect this.
More and more British Nuclear Test Veterans and their families are benefiting from the work of the NCCF and are signing up to receive the new exposure magazine. Don’t be left behind you can join the NCCF completely free this year and guarantee your copies of Exposure magazine
From the early days of the old BNTVA, a magazine has been produced for the community. The original home produced handouts evolved over the years and as the organisation grew and technology changed, the quality of the magazine improved.
With the old BNTVA coming to an end as a result of last years conference decision to end its charitable status as a membership organisation. Two new charities have now been launched with the assets of the old BNTVA being vested across.
The new BNTVA is Foundation Charitable Incorporated Organisation, which basically means that it operates as a charity but does not have any voting members other than their Trustee board.
The NCCF also launched as a Foundation CIO and is now delivering the most vibrant exciting activities the Nuclear Community has seen in its entire history. Exposure magazine will exclusively cover all the great news stories coming from these activities.
We are delighted to have secured the services of Steve Bexon on the Exposure magazine team, joining us as Editor in Chief, Steve brings his experience of editing and producing the old BNTVA Campaign magazine and over 20 years as a graphic designer.
Exposure is built of independent editorial sections, essentially magazines within magazines.
Each editorial is produced by different groups taking part in the NCCF initiative to join the Nuclear Community and forge links with other communities of common bond. Currently the NCCF, CHRC and OBSIVEN editorials all combine to give you more information than from any other organisation.
If you receive a printed copy of the magazine please share it with family or any veteran friends you have. There are over 100,000 people in the British Nuclear Community and we need to connect with them all.
