Frontfoot Life Project
Frontfoot Life Project is free for all members of the veteran family including currently serving personnel, veterans, reservists and, vitally, their families. The magic happens in the project transition package. Every veteran community member is personally assigned a transition partner through our FrontFoot Life Project. FrontFoot Life partners have made the transition themselves, so they not only understand what they are going through but they speak their language. The FrontFoot Life charity transition support is not a tick box exercise but an individually tailored support plan for 12 months from the date the candidate starts work.
Candidate & Transition Support
Getting a job is the first step to rebuilding the confidence often lost when going from order to the chaos of civvy street. Having a transition support partner means that confidence is supported in the long term.
The support available to transition partners comes from both internal and external sources which can literally take the gun out of the mouth of some people. Instant, anonymous mental health support is available 24/7 through our incredible charity partners and the NHS have made available resources for mental health support. Finance companies are working with us to help people budget and reduce debt burden. Alcohol and substance abuse councillors (nobody wants to talk about this but it’s a genuine problem) and much more.
We are lucky to have such tremendous support from employers up and down the country who have all agreed to allow our FrontFoot Life transition partners access to their new recruit and their immediate line manager for a period of 12 months.
It is fantastic to see the support of all these companies to help honour the service of our veteran community however from a business perspective there are no fees. Their new hire has the best experience, determination and skills around and they have a support mechanism to help ensure they stay happy and healthy and working.
