We do this to ensure that:

  • Ex-Service personnel develop ‘resilience’ and knowledge to succeed in civilian life
  • Spouses are able to achieve their employment and training aspirations

  • Employers acquire a positive perspective and knowledge of veterans worth.
  • Employers can access the ‘veteran’ workforce
