Alliance member, Hire a Hero, is seeking volunteers to help support servicemen and women as they adjust to civilian life after leaving the armed forces. The scheme run by Hire a Hero, aims to recruit 100 mentors this year across the UK to support service leavers.
Potential mentors will undergo one day of training, including materials on Hire a Hero and its work, transition and how best to support a service leaver. Following the day mentors will be supported through charity staff, the mentor network online and via phone, and through Hire a Hero mentor conferences.
Anyone interested in taking part in the scheme can contact Hire a Hero through its website hireaherouk.org, via email firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 01495 761084.
