How We Help
First Steps is our scheme which helps to fund both educational and vocational courses which are being attended by the Wounded, Injured and Sick. Individuals can apply directly for help to fund courses which will assist in qualifications to help them re-integrate in the work place.
For further details or to apply, please contact Fergus Williams in the WWTW office.
Recovery Career Services
We are very proud to be involved in the RCS, a collaboration between the Ministry of Defense, the Career Transition Partnership, which manages the resettlement for all service leavers, as well as Walking With The Wounded, Help for Heroes, The Soldiers’ Charity, The Royal British Legion and the Regular Forces Employment Agency. The RCS provides a comprehensive pathway from the military into the civilian job market for our Wounded, Injured and Sick wounded service personnel.
The Poppy Factory
The Back to Work Programme, powered by The Poppy Factory, delivers support leading to employment for our wounded ex-servicemen and women, providing career development advice and vocational assessments, the sourcing of appropriate employers, and suitable roles within the correct culture of employment.
RBLI’s LifeWorks programme is designed to act as an easily accessible service that identifies what specific issues are facing the Wounded, draws together and co-ordinates any specialist help they may need and supports them on their pathway to employment.
In a joint venture with the RFEA, Walking With The Wounded supply a Special Employment Consultant to help veterans being assisted by Alabaré Homes. Alabaré help homeless veterans to gain the skills and confidence they need to move on to their own accommodation, work or training.
We also work directly with corporates who are looking to employ wounded servicemen and women, identifying the right employment for those with the right qualifications. It is vital that those who have been injured are aware of their own strengths and weaknesses, and are able to understand their aptitude so they look for the right job in the right sector. We help to coordinate this process, working with other organisations who have the required expertise. There is extraordinary willingness in the corporate sector to help these young men and women find work, but it is vital that the right job is identified for each individual for the right reason.
This programme is continually developing, and we would be delighted to hear directly from companies who would like to offer wounded servicemen and women employment opportunities.
