Stoll teams up with partners to support Veterans into work

17 Apr, 2019

Stoll, the leading provider of supported housing for Veterans, has been awarded £19,700 by the Armed Forces Covenant Fund to enable more Veterans to be independent. Forty Veterans will be supported this year with skills, training and qualifications to help them into work and volunteering roles.

Good training and skills help people maximise income and re-enter the workplace after leaving the Armed Forces. They can also build their skills, confidence and self-esteem through volunteering. Stoll will partner with several different organisations to ensure Veterans receive bespoke support that meets their needs.

Employment for Veterans is not always straightforward and working-age Veterans are nearly twice as likely to be unemployed as their civilian counterparts. The new initiative directly addresses the employability of Veterans, maximising opportunities by building strong links with potential employers, and increasing the confidence and skills of Veterans through workshops in CV writing, interview skills and job search. Stoll will be partnering with a range of expert providers, including The Poppy Factory, RFEA, Career Transition Partnership, SAGE, Fighting Chance, Warrior Programme and the Barclays AFTER Programme. Stoll will provide small grants to assist with the cost of work-related courses and materials. Veterans will be expected to part-fund any courses/equipment to ensure their commitment.
