The need for Veteran Support Services
Veterans gain a broad range of skills and knowledge during their time in service. While research suggests they outperform the general population in a number of desirable employee traits (critical thinking, leadership and problem solving), they are often overlooked for employment positions.
Social stigma relating to mental health and a lack of formal qualifications remain key barriers for veterans in the civilian job market. As a result, one in three veterans are unemployed with 5.3% experiencing homelessness in the last 12 months (compared to 1.9% in the civilian population).
Through engaging with the veteran community CIS helps ex-service men and women access services to gain nationally recognised qualifications and improve their outcomes in civilian life.
