Scott served in the British Army for 11 years, achieving the rank of Lance Corporal. He served in Iraq (twice), Kosovo, and Afghanistan but was tragically wounded after being shot in the ribs and shoulder whilst on his last tour.
He left the army and returned to his wife and son. After years of military service, Scott found it difficult to adapt to civilian life. After the breakdown of his marriage, he began to find everyday life increasingly difficult. During this time he also managed to run up debts which were becoming increasingly problematic to manage. After being forced to leave the marital home, Scott became homeless with nowhere to turn.
Fortunately, Scott's local Council referred him to Alabaré and we quickly moved him into one of our specialist Homes for Veterans. He settled in immediately and felt much more comfortable in a house surrounded by other Veterans.
With the benefits of having a place to call home and a dedicated team of support staff, Scott set about finding training schemes, and enrolled on several courses. He passed his fork lift license test and serveral other exams including English and Maths. He also started the process of sorting out his debts. On the personal side of his life, Scott was able to keep up contact with his son and his wife, and he kept up his fitness regime, using the gym equipment provided in the house.
Before long, Scott had secured a good well paid position for himself in the local area. With Alabaré's help, Scott managed to regain his independance and moved out of our home into his own accommodation after just 3 months.
