Employment and Housing
Help for Heroes strives to achieve the best for the men and women of Great Britain’s Armed Forces, both serving and veteran. We are proud to work with other Service charities to make sure that the wounded, injured and sick get the support they deserve. Here is how Help for Heroes' grants have improved re-employment and housing support available to our wounded Servicemen, women and veterans.
Finchale Training College
Over the past 62 years, Finchale Training College has provided a service to an increasingly diverse range of adults with disabilities.
All of the programmes delivered by Finchale are customised to address individual need and bring together a wide range of specialist support to achieve sustained employment.
The Help for Heroes grant will provide a provision that will address the economic and social inclusion of veterans, helping them to overcome multiple and complex barriers.
The programme has been very successful with the first 60 veterans progressing into economic and social inclusion either with paid employment, vocational training, further education or voluntary work. They currently have a 100% progression rate.
Individuals who have taken part in the programme have also visited the Help for Heroes Recovery Centre at Catterick and are fully engaged with the H4H team there.
