Operation Re-Org / Groundwork GM
Groundwork Greater Manchester is at the heart of delivering bespoke Armed Forces support across Greater Manchester. As a business, we have employed two dedicated Armed Forces officers. They provide tailored employment support and guidance to the Armed Forces Community with particular emphasis on vulnerable veterans via Operation Re-Org, which is our Veterans Programme. Since its conception 5 years ago, Operation Re-Org has supported 1550 members of the Armed Forces community with a variety of support needs. To enhance our understanding and appreciation of the Armed Forces we actively engage at military events and courses, we participate in training events organised by the RBL and the Army HQ NW in Preston. We attend the workshops organised by the Armed Forces Covenant and Cobseo. We work closely with charities and Organisations including The RBL, MVS NCA NHS in GM, Veterans in Communities and Disability Stockport.
