There is help available for offenders and ex-offenders who want to re-join the community through social support and employment opportunities. Several organisations can help veterans become confident and productive individuals who want to provide for themselves and their families.
Royal British Legion Industries
Royal British Legion Industries (RBLI) delivers the LifeWorks course, working with veterans to help them identify and access meaningful and sustainable employment. This includes ex-offenders who want to train and find new opportunities. Visit the LifeWorks website to learn more.
SSAFA - the Armed Forces charity
SSAFA is a charity supporting regular and reserve service personnel and their families. SSAFA operates a network of Prison-In reach volunteers, who help those serving prison sentences.
They also offer support to offenders and their families once they are out of prison. Visit the SSAFA website for more information.
Walking with the Wounded
Walking With The Wounded (WWTW) is a national charity that identifies and supports veterans caught up in a cycle of anti-social and criminal activity through Project Nova.
