Veterans Help Jobless
8:00am 18th March 2012
Former combat veterans suffering post traumatic stress are helping people get a job in Cornwall.
They are working for Active First - which offers support for over fifties. Courses are being rolled out across the Duchy after a pilot last year.
Director Tim Cocks said, "What could tend to happen is they stop applying, they stay at home, they don't go out. So what we want to do is actually get them out, get them working and meeting people just like themselves. They can actually help each other."
