In recent KBB news it was reported that UK kitchen manufacturer PWS has agreed to long-term support to Help For Heroes at Catterick, focusing on helping the wounded, injured and sick personnel in their transition to civilian employment.
Hosted vocational visits for Recovery Centre personnel are central to PWS’s involvement, offering an opportunity for those in the armed services to appreciate not only the types of employment available but also to gain a wider understanding of both the differences and similarities between military and civilian employment.
The recent vocational visit of 12 soldiers was the second in six months and plans are underway to follow this up with tailored work placements for course members to gain specific job-related experience.
In addition to offering the vocational support to Help For Heroes the partnership has been cemented with the design, manufacture, installation and donation of four self-help kitchens to the Personal Recovery Centre at Catterick and a further three kitchens to the new facility at Plymouth.
