The Armed Forces Covenant Fund has supported the Aldershot Enterprise Centre as it has similar goals, ie: integrating military and local communities, and in doing so created over 20 new companies and 30 new jobs in the first year of operation.
The Covenant funds have provided support through contributing towards training costs and the business mentors who work with the new companies. The Covenant has also supported a development worker for the Centre to make sure the military and community referral sources are fully aware of the Centre and how it can help local people.
To get a full breakdown on what the Armed Forces Covenant fund is, how it has helped us and the surrounding community, and how it might help you, have a look at the latest copy of the Aldershot Garrison Herald (April/May).
