Sacro’s current Veteran’s Mentoring Service (VMS) has received vital funding for the next three years through The National Lottery Communities Fund. The service aims to support people who have completed service with the Armed Forces and are at risk of becoming involved or are already involved in the criminal justice system. This funding and service will cover the areas of Edinburgh and Lothians in recognition of significant need.

VMS is an intensive mentoring and one to one support service that is focussed on supporting veterans, at a time of significant challenge in their lives. The post holder(s) will assist veterans to recognise and develop their life skills including accessing education and employment training, sustaining their tenancies and accommodation, and building the confidence to make critical changes in their lives. These critical changes include addressing their offending behaviour, understanding the effects of this on their lives and the lives of their families and friends and addressing alcohol and substance use issues.

A valid driving licence and access to a car is essential.

Membership of the Protecting Vulnerable Groups Scheme (PVG) will be a requirement for these posts.

We welcome applications from individuals who share Sacro’s aims and values and want to engage with those we support to help them move on to a more secure, settled and fulfilling life and value diversity from all sections of the community.
