CWO Forum: Returning to Civilian LifeTweet
Visit CWO Forums
Date: Tue 9th Jul 2013
Location: RESCHEDULED (Westminster)
Speaker: To be confirmed
- The government's perspective, in terms of current policy
- What it is like to adjust to civilian life, if one has to manage the impacts of trauma (a trauma specialist will talk about her work with ex-service-men who are suffering from PTSD);
- The challenges of finding work and adjusting to a different work context (one of the ‘Band of Brothers’ will be speaking to us about these issues, on behalf of Help for Heroes);
- The challenges of being made redundant, as part of the current changes to the armed forces (an officer who has just left the Army at the end of his commission, where he was a bomb disposal expert, will talk about his experiences and the support that is currently available).
We also hope that thinking more about these issues more deeply could help us all to reflect upon the support that will be needed for our Reserves, their families and wider community, as the balance shifts from regular forces, to having a growing number of soldiers based in the Territorial Army.
