"My Outreach Worker knew that after I was medically discharged from the Army, I found it difficult to acclimitise to civilian workplaces as I missed the military work ethic that I was used to. The charity's backing took a lot of pressure off me. Their support enabled me to buy and make a success of my own business doing something which I enjoy." Robert Reid, Royal Scots Borders veteran
