Since conception, Future for Heroes has helped over 600 people make the difficult return to civilian life. Through the enormous generosity of our sponsors and benefactors, we have been able to support those individuals with a free residential course held at Brathay, on the banks of Lake Windermere. The course describes how to focus on the many strengths and skills the individuals have learnt from service life, as well as assisting them all to cope with the many emotional and physical changes to their lifestyle. Many have attended with huge emotional challenges, others with little idea concerning their future direction; some do not see a future for themselves after the military. However, all are examples of individual sailors, soldiers and airmen who have made sacrifices for their country. The course shows them how to translate those skills and attributes into qualities that potential employers look for.
Like those in the process of leaving the forces family, Future for Heroes has had to evolve and change. With new people in key positions, a re-brand and a new name as well as fresh ideas and a new syllabus, we are even better prepared to offer our help and expertise to the thousands who are coming to terms with leaving the armed forces. We do not, however, offer clinical intervention.
