Employ-Able

We know that veterans can experience difficulty in adjusting to civilian life for a number of different reasons. We also know that people who are living with depression, anxiety and other mental health conditions can benefit greatly from volunteering or by moving into work placements or employment.

Employ-Able is available throughout Scotland and offers both one-to-one and group support that can plan a way back into employment. SAMH (Scottish Association for Mental Health) Employment Advisors are aware of how health can impact the lives of veterans and their families, and can assist people in achieving their hopes and aspirations.

To find out more about Employ-Able call 0131 550 1568 or email d.coll@poppyscotland.org.uk
