Organisation that supports veterans get back into training and employment.

Project RECCE launches in Stockport and commences courses with seeding from The Royal Foundation and the One Stockport Local Fund.

Chris served his country for 12 tireless years in the British Army until he was medically discharged as a result of the trauma he had experienced. Not only had he lost the career he loved but he struggled with his confidence and felt lost and alone.  

After some research, he reached out to Project RECCE, an organisation that supports veterans back into training and employment. This started his journey and he attended a comprehensive programme which supports service leavers like Chris into new careers in the construction industry.
