This scoping paper focuses on the nature of vulnerable veterans employability and the adequacy of current provision. In January 2010 Project Compass became part of Crisis UK. The new phase of the project aims to move away from client facing delivery and take a more strategic and national approach to impact on the issues surrounding vulnerable veterans’ employability. With this aim it was decided to conduct some scoping work to gain a greater understanding of the current issues in the field of homeless veterans’ employability; what the current employability provision looks like and where Project Compass can make the most impact in its delivery in the future.
