Who are we

Battling On is a multi award winning Community Interest Company that not only provides wrap around care and support, but trains veterans to become mentors and instructors, employing them to deliver educational programmes to some of the West Country’s most vulnerable young people.

Veterans Skills

Veterans have a unique skill set that can be deployed to support young people overcome complex barriers to education and training. Battling On’s veterans help young people learn vocational skills and become work ready, helping them gain the skills they need to lift themselves out of poverty.

Battling On has developed a comprehensive training programme that supports veterans to gain teaching qualifications
