Highground and Buchanan Trust

Following a recent meeting with Andrew Bower, Chairman, and James Greenwell Trustee  of the Buchanan Trust, and Anna Baker Cresswell, Founder and Development Director of HighGround, we are delighted to announce that both charities will be working together to pursue their common aims in order to help veterans access training and employment in the land-based sector.

HighGround will continue their highly successful Rural Weeks at UK agricultural colleges for Service Leavers and Veterans (HighGrounders) to find out about land-based employment and self-employment, and their work experience initiative to help HighGrounders take up appropriate work placement on the many farms and estates who have kindly volunteered experience as part of HighGround’s mission, Life beyond the military – Outdoors.

The Buchanan Trust have a training facility at their Bosbury Estate in Herefordshire which currently provides rural and construction sector skills training with end of course certificates. Accommodation is currently arranged locally but plans are underway to raise funds for a new residential block for course attendees.
