Although we are still a young charity there is a lot going on. In order to ensure we are providing current information to our funders and partners we update our Executive Summary every quarter.
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.
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.
