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.

Crucially this housing advice includes support for serving personnel, up to a year prior to discharge, who are at risk of becoming homeless on discharge. SPACES delivers pro-active tailored 1:1 guidance, with the aim of preventing homelessness and rough sleeping among single Service leavers and veterans.
Within MCTC Colchester we have a fulltime Housing Worker who delivers a weekly housing brief on homelessness, veterans projects and private renting to all those who are sent to MCTC. Advice is also available on buying and renting property off camp whilst still serving to help prevent future homelessness. Members of the military staff can also use the service and receive advice and help on all aspects of housing before they leave.
