Chairman Talks: Transferable Skills From Military Service To Anti Poaching

As Chairman of SAVSIM CIC, there are several stories I hear about ex-servicemen and the struggle of adjusting back into everyday life. With a select skillset often overlooked by several traditional workplaces making that transition can be a difficult one. Research conducted in 2019 found that on average ex personnel can take as long as 7 months to transition into a civilian career when leaving the forces. Throughout this time, some found issues with confidence and mental health to be overwhelming. There is the risk of not only depression but anxiety PTSD and so much more.

Making The Transition From Military Service To Civilian Life

With over 20% of veterans stating that they have struggled to get into a career following leaving the armed forces, it is important to us here at SAVSIM to provide those struggling with the opportunity to use some of their transferable skills to make a difference. With several programs already out there and several other amazing charities offering both help and guidance to those veterans that need it, there are more avenues than ever to ensure those who need it get the help they need.

Support For Veterans

At SAVSIM, we have the Warrior of Hope program that provides veterans with the help they need whilst also working towards eliminating animal poaching. We hold several fundraising events throughout the course of the year to increase funds and continue our journey to help veterans transition into delivering anti-poaching programs and preventing wildlife crime and to deliver more animal-assisted therapy courses to help veterans with PTSD. With several connections and our amazing ambassadors, we can provide support to those that need it most.

If you would like to know more about us and what we do as an organisation, please visit us on our website or follow us on Instagram @savsim_official .

On behalf of the animals, we protect and the veterans we support.
