Carer Support Wiltshire is a registered charity that supports all carers in Wiltshire. Our aim is to create carer friendly communities where carers are recognised, valued and supported.
A carer is anybody who provides support to a family member, friend or neighbour who could not always manage without that support
Our Courage to Care Service is funded by the Armed Forces Covenant to provide services to serving military families who are caring for somebody and may experience additional pressures due to the nature of serving family life
Courage to Care focuses on developing peer support networks, and offering additional skills that will enable carers to access work and accredited courses that will enable families to sustain themselves

Operation Re-org is the area of our work that has specific relevance to the military community. Operation Re-Org is our ex-military skills for employment programme; it helps veterans who have struggled to find permanent employment because of difficult personal circumstances such as physical injuries, mental health problems, substance misuse issues, homelessness or having a criminal record.

We work with local forces charities to identify veterans who may benefit from our help. The programme, which is led by Terry Morley, a veteran who served with the 1st Battalion King’s Regiment, includes:
– Personalised assessment to identify support needed and establish goals
– Intensive 1-1 mentoring, support and training to build skills and confidence
– Development of a ‘working mind-set’ – essential workplace behaviours
– Job brokerage services to support people into job vacancies followed with 6 months in work support
– Bespoke training packages to support veterans back in to employment including accredited qualifications e.g. health and safety, first aid and CSCS.

The aim of the programme is for veterans to progress into sustained employment and gain long-lasting positive changes in their personal circumstances as a result of having a regular salary and routine, the opportunity to learn new skills, increased social interaction and improvements in confidence and feelings of self-worth.

We also provide additional IAG support services and work with a wide range of employers in the public and private sector to help them recruit armed forces veterans into their workforce.

We are also a specialist provider of employment focused support services for people that have a criminal record, including through the gate support for people that have served a custodial sentence.
