The Soldiers’ Charity helps jailed veterans access education

Over 40 ex-armed service personnel have been awarded access to arts and education in prison, thanks to a generous grant from ABF The Soldiers’ Charity.

The Charity awarded Prisoners’ Education Trust a grant of £15,000 in November 2016. Through this, PET has been able to provide courses for ex-soldiers across England and Wales who want to improve their wellbeing in prison and enhance their life chances after release.

PET has funded veterans to study qualifications such as GCSEs, A Levels and vocational certificates; in subjects including psychology, law, book-keeping and sign language.
