Project Nova provides Care Coordination to ex-servicemen and women who have been arrested or are at risk of arrest.
Project Nova supports vulnerable veterans and veterans who have been arrested and enter Police Custody. Veterans may also be referred by specialist Police teams, or other statutory organisations. As of 2019 we also supports ex-Merchant Navy personnel who have worked with HM Forces on Operational deployment.
Launched on 1st July 2014, Project Nova is delivered as a partnership between RFEA and WWTW. Project Nova currently operates in the East of England; the North East; the North West, Lincoln, Devon and Cornwall and South Yorkshire and Humberside.
Project Nova is operated by staff with a blend of experience from the armed forces, Criminal Justice System and charities. Our staff are skilled at engaging with veterans to understand their experience of military service, their lives before they joined the armed forces, and their transition back to civilian life. Project Nova undertakes a needs assessment for each individual and puts in place specialist support from a network of military charities and other organisations. We then keep in touch ensuring that the veterans we support have an ongoing connection, checking in and resolving issues when they occur.
Project Nova is one of the interventions featured in the Phillips Review: Former Members of the Armed Services and the Criminal Justice System, A Review on Behalf of the Secretary of State for Justice (December 2014).
