Veterans supported through new programme

8 February 2018

Foundation of Light are set to lend a helping hand to the region’s veterans with the launch of a new project next month.

Run with support from the Armed Forces Covenant, an organisation that seeks to ensure that those who serve or have served, and their families, are treated fairly, the programme will aim to help veterans gain qualifications, work experience and links to employers that will help them settle into civilian life.

The Veterans’ Employability programme offers a mix of classroom, practical and physical activities in a friendly environment, alongside the help of an employment specialist working with local businesses to identify job opportunities for course participants.

Foundation of Light has won awards for its pioneering work with people of all ages and has previously run veteran-focussed programmes helping those struggling with a range of challenges such as ill health (including post-traumatic stress disorder and depression), lack of motivation and lack of suitable qualifications for the local labour market.

We’re very happy to be launching this new programme that will help people leaving the Armed Forces gain work and get on with their lives, and I’d like to thank Armed Forces Covenant who are making this possible.

One of our strengths as an organisation is that we can treat people as individuals and change what we do to suit their needs. This means you’ve got a better chance at succeeding and you don’t waste time working on things that aren’t important to you.

Dave Jeffries, Foundation of Light Skills Lead (Sunderland)

The programme will offer a tailored approach to learning meaning that everybody will receive unique support.

Foundation of Light are also welcoming enquiries from businesses who would like to support the programme through offering work experience and placement opportunities.

Linda Hughes, Foundation of Light Business Liaison Coordinator added: “We already have links with over 200 local businesses but are always keen to hear from others who would like to support the vital work we’re doing to improve the lives of local people.”

Employers who would like to support the programme should call 0191 5515041 or email linda.hughes@foundationoflight.co.uk.

For further information about joining the programme call 0191 5377959 or email dave.jeffries@foundationoflight.co.uk.
