Visit Enable at the ILP Armed Forces Day

We will be hosting a stand at the Independent Living Partnership’s Armed Forces Day. The event will take place on Wednesday 22 March, 9:30am – 4:30pm. The exhibition will show case organisations that provide services for the benefit of our Armed Forces personnel, veterans and their families.

We work closely with the National Charity Walking with the Wounded and the Veterans Mental Health Network NHS in the Shropshire, Telford and South Staffordshire area to offer support to vulnerable veterans looking for paid employment. The service is designed to support a wide range of veterans, including those with mental health needs and/or disabilities.

The service offers individualised support in finding the right job for each person, as well as time-unlimited assistance in the job, to both the veteran and the employer. We have employment officers who have previously served in the Armed Forces and therefore can offer clients an unparalleled understanding of military life. The scheme helps veterans to gain the skills and qualifications necessary to develop new careers outside the military – providing long-term security for themselves and their families.
