The Universities in Support of Wounded, Injured and Sick Service Personnel Programme (UNSWIS) Programme was incorporated into RFEA’s portfolio in 2017. Thanks to a grant from Help for Heroes, the Programme has had a dedicated manager since January 2018. A review of the Programme gathered feedback from a range of stakeholders and the resulting improvements include greater clarity about what the Programme offers.
UNSWIS is network of around 50 Universities who support wounded, injured or sick veterans, and those who face a barrier to employment. Clients can apply for different activity types, tailored on a case by case basis, to help inform on employment or education options. (Veterans’ Gateway, Sep 2018)
