Armed Forces VaE

LC Partnership Ltd in partnership with Veterans at Ease:

Veterans at Ease is a UK-registered charity committed to helping Veterans, Reservists, Serving Military Personnel and their families deal with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and other combat stress-related issues. They will help anyone who feels they need support whether they have been diagnosed with PTSD or not.

As natural progression to the support offered, we work in partnership to further support our beneficiaries with employment and training opportunities. Having some Directors who are Veterans themselves, LC Partnership Ltd are key advocates for Defence.

LCP work closely with many employers in the North East and can be strong advocators of the Armed Forces and actively advocate how Service Leavers’ and Veterans’ can benefit industry and the community. Through conducting Defence events or campaigns, LCP provide unique mentoring and provide a personalised level of support to Service Leavers and Veterans.

Through our Lightbulb Programme, LCP help identify the many skill sets that Service Leavers and Veterans have and mentor them to translate a military mind-set and to articulate it to what a civilian employer understands.
