I defy anyone not to have a tear in their eye after this video.
We are Who Dares Works one of the Building Better Opportunities projects. We are based in the West of Cornwall. We are so so proud of all our participants and our partners who have helped everyone on their journey.
Our Armed Forcers Community Social Prescribing Link Workers have been helping Surgeries to become Veteran Friendly accredited. The number of accredited surgeries is increasing all the time and we are delighted that Roche surgery have joined their partners Brannel, Probus and Roseland to become the first Veteran friendly accredited Primary Care Network in Cornwall.
Our Link Workers are supporting GP’s, the wider Social Prescription Link Worker network and the Armed Forces Community. They are providing information, advice, guidance and training, helping people to better understand the needs and support available to members of the Armed Forces Community.
They are connecting support organisations and making sure that veterans, their partners, families and carers are getting the right support at the right time.
We’ll be presenting the story so far to the Independent Veterans Advisor during his visit to Cornwall later this month.
Have you ever served in the armed forces and are looking to help yourself through helping others? Our workforce of ex-forces personnel, some of whom are wounded, injured or sick, usually join us as volunteers and progress into full or part time paid work within or outside the company.
We’ve helped over 300 military veterans since we started in 2011, most have now moved on into other work and training. Staff turnover is a positive thing for us and we’re always on the look-out for new recruits.
So if you are a military veteran looking for a challenge or who needs a change, or a second chance to get on track get in touch! If you know someone who fits the bill then point them in our direction.
Why not get in touch with us and make the most of the opportunities offered on this fantastic project, whether it’s a taste of Muay Thai, the construction industry or cooking (and more!) in the community.
