EXECUTIVE SUMMARY – MARCH, 2017.

The HighGround Vision

Our vision is to be the leading organisation for the provision of land-based opportunities for all ex-military personnel and Reservists. The organisation is positioned as a forward-facing destination where benefi ciaries can be assured of understanding, assistance and long-term support and advice to help sustain their successful transition to civilian life.

The Need

Approximately 14,000 members of the Armed Forces leave every year. It is well recognised across a wealth of research that employment is a critical component of successful transition to civilian life and more importantly that those [individuals] who choose a job as part of a career path, are more likely to be motivated and feel they are progressing.
