The building industry is similar to the military in terms of the sense of purpose, camaraderie, focus on planning and operations and realisation that risk is present and must be mitigated by team work. Therefore I realised that if we could train veterans in the skills needed to build their own project, it would give great experience, a sense of purpose and a hope filled future. They would be creating something which would give them confidence and skill whilst at the same time providing a location where those less progressed on their transition and recovery could go for respite. This centre would offer somewhere families could stay for short breaks as well as a location for both trade and wellness related courses could be held. Local tradespeople would volunteer to support the project and potentially offer employment upon completion of the courses.
