Help for veterans
AS the new year gets under way, ex-Forces men and women who are out of work in Wales will be looking ahead to what 2019 might have in store for them.
This can be a challenging time of year for veterans. Those with mental or physical health conditions who do not have a job or a close support network can feel particularly isolated.
At The Poppy Factory, we know ex-servicemen and women who are injured or sick will still flourish in the right working environment. The Poppy Factory’s employability team works with individuals in their communities, helping to boost their confidence and skills and look for the right job opportunities. We help with everything from CV writing and interview preparation to training.
This year I hope many more businesses and organisations across Wales will consider the value that veterans can add to their workforce. Our team is ready to help more wounded and sick veterans find a way to fulfil their potential in the civilian world.
