It’s been a privilege and an absolute pleasure to have been awarded the contract to work in close association with a Community Interest Company (CIC) to design and build the Lincoln-based, Troops 2 Trades website – http://www.troops2trades.org.uk/
Troops to Trades CIC has been established to give assistance and support to ALL uniformed service veterans and armed forces personnel to make the transition to civilian employment. This transition assistance can either be at end of their service or during their rehabilitation having suffered illness or injury as a result of their service duty.
This transition period can be the most difficult time in the life of any ex-services person and their families with many failing to make the change successfully. Many family breakups can be due to insecurity, lack of opportunity and not being able to support their family.
Veterans and their families can become isolated, lonely, insecure and lose their self-respect. The once proud service veterans see themselves as failures.
T2T has been set up to aid uniformed veterans to job match their skills to enhance their opportunities. There are also opportunities available to those who are unable to work to a normal daily routine due to medication or infirmity, giving them back some respect, independence and security.
