Whilst many service leavers complete their service with their mental health intact, there are some of us who still live in the dark places and from time to time need a leg up when it comes to realising our dreams and what we still have to offer.
Being a recovering ex-serviceman myself with mental health issues, I can say with a firm belief that running my own business hands down beats any prescribed drug or recommended therapy, this seems to be the case across the board and can be very beneficial to those who engage in projects such as this.
Our aim is
- To form an entrepreneurial circle for ex-service personnel
- To encourage, grow and support new ideas
- To allow veterans the opportunity to use their transferable skills in order to help others achieve within the network
What will we do with the funds raised?
Allow V.E.N to organise meetings and grow the circle, once established we would look at generating our own sources of income by way of partnering with our members for a period of time in order to re-invest the funds used.
We are always on the lookout for new people and places to run our projects so if you know of any area in South West England, we'd love to hear from you.
Our first networking event will take place in Newton Abbot Royal British Legion, times and dates tbc.
