Leaving the armed forces and entering civilian live isn’t always easy. In fact it can be one of the most difficult changes in life when routine and certainty is replaced by ambiguity and unpredictability.

You could easily apply that description to leaving full time employment in order to set up your own business.

So the Wrexham Enterprise Hub has combined the two crossroads to form a clear way forward.

COULD YOU MAKE A DIFFERENCE TO THE LIFE OF A CHILD IN CARE?

“Veterans into Business” is a free nine week programme covering essential topics needed to start up your own business such as legal structures, business plans, fundraising and social media.

It takes place on Saturdays so those veterans in work can take advantage of this opportunity.

There’s limited spaces available so to find out more contact the organisers at businesssupport@gov.wales or take the bold step and book your place now.

First session begins June 1 at 10am and the course finishes on July 27.

Cllr David Griffiths, Armed Forces Champion, said: “The organisers have come up with a great idea for those leaving active service to gain all the necessary skills to go into business for themselves now they are veterans. It’s a great idea and I hope many veterans take advantage of this great free course.”
