    Winston Churchill

Veterans encountering the Criminal Justice System often have complex needs that can be directly linked to their military service. There are also lifestyle factors such as housing, employment, substance misuse, and relationships, that can affect their offending behaviour. Additionally, a lack of trust in the system and society is prevalent. 

Care after Combat Volunteer Mentors are a proven and critical resource. They support our service users by working with them to change their situation by breaking damaging, recurring behaviours and helping them through their journey to what will hopefully be a crime free life. 

Volunteer Mentors work with the service user from 12 months prior to release, developing a relationship based on trust, then addressing the individual’s needs to prepare them for integration back into the community with a renewed purpose, self-esteem and taking responsibility for shaping their own future.
