Moving on from university life into work can be a daunting experience. VCF aims to help new graduates by linking them up with VCF members in their local area. New graduates are given the opportunity to be connected with an experienced member of the profession who acts as a mentor. Such relationships, providing a listening ear and mature advice, can be crucial to new vets as they find their feet in this new stage in their lives.Find out more
Groups of students at most of the vet schools in the UK meet to encourage and support each other in their faith, in their life at vet school and to serve those on campus. VCF students serve others and show the love of Christ in a variety of ways; from handing out free cake and encouragement around exam time to running events with food, drink and a short talk about the good news of Jesus Christ.
VCF can help financially support this important outreach. For more information please contact Jenni Hay VCF treasurer or Hannah McClintick VCF student liaison. (firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com)

Let us never forget to pray. God lives. He is near. He is real. He is not only aware of us but cares for us. He is our Father. He is accessible to all who will seek Him. Gordon B. Hinckley
