Royal British Legion Industries (RBLI) has a heritage as a military charity, supporting Armed Forces veterans, especially those who are wounded, injured or sick. It is the intensive support for those injured or disabled through combat, or recently medically discharged from the Armed Forces, which has driven the charity forward and encouraged them to use this expertise to help those beyond the military community. Today, RBLI’s employment teams deliver support across Kent and Sussex to help long-term unemployed people gain confidence in the job seeking process and to secure work.
The new RBLI office at Crawley Business Centre is the latest of several across the South East, where they help hundreds of people in finding work and gaining new skills, setting the foundations for a brighter, more independent, future.
Lesley Collins, RBLI Assistant Director of Operations, says: “The team at Needspace? were professional, friendly and accommodating. As a charity we need to ensure we are delivering from somewhere that is located in the best place for people we support, as well as being cost-effective. At Crawley Business Centre we have all this, as well as flexibility, which suits the fluctuating nature of the back-to-work sector. The team were lovely, assisting us throughout the process and we are delighted to now be providing support from this new space!”
