Royal British Legion Industries VICTER Project in partnership with the Armed Forces Covenant
Veterans In Custody Training, Employability and Rehabilitation
The VICTER project is fully funded by the Armed Forces Covenant. The purpose of the project is to support veterans in Prison with employability skills and health and well-being whilst in custody.
How are we supporting Veterans in custody?
RBLI have been delivering Lifeworks in Prisons across the country for nearly two years and have a fully booked programme for prisons in 2016. Spaces are available for 2017. Lifeworks is Matrix Accredited.
The Lifeworks trainers at RBLI are well rehearsed in delivering the course in Prisons and can adapt the course to suit the prison regime, restrictions on computers and internet access without compromising on the quality of the course.
Prisoners are required to have 12 months or less to serve to join us on the course and we can deliver the course to 6-12 prisoners. Please note that Lifeworks is only available to British Ex-forces.
Living in the Prison Service
RBLI deliver a monthly programme for British ex-forces in prison. The programme offers veterans a safe space to come together and share experiences. Sessions are designed to increase health and wellbeing whilst in custody and the programme covers topics such as Locus of Control, Communication, Yoga and Legal Highs. In addition, there are sessions on financial advice and guidance available to veterans and accommodation available to veterans. There are no requirements for the number of attendees and prisoners can attend regardless of sentence length.
