Our approach

We have pledged to uphold the key principles of the Armed Forces Covenant, which ensures that no member of the armed forces community experiences disadvantage in our services. As an Armed Forces Friendly organisation, we will work with veterans to learn about the significant challenges they face and will use our national platform and wide geographical footprint to share our learning and to co-produce appropriate services.

We recognise the huge sacrifices made by ex-service men and women and see it as our obligation to support the resettlement of the Armed Forces Community wherever there is a Nacro service.

Our work with veterans

At Stody House in Manchester, Nacro works collaboratively with other service providers to deliver cognitive psychological and social rehabilitation services, access to employment and training opportunities to support the residents to re-build their lives. Stody House also provides service users access to short- to medium-term accommodation and support to help them recover from physical, mental or social injury following their time in service.

Funded by the Royal British Legion, we deliver support services throughout Essex to veterans who are also ex-offenders, supporting them back into voluntary and paid work. We deliver this work both in prisons and community, providing disclosure and education, training and employment support. We use our expertise in disclosure and our extensive knowledge of resettlement to ensure that service users understand how to make a positive disclosure and have the confidence to move into work.
