MILITARY veterans have been promised help in finding a job.

Lancashire Care Foundation Trust has signed up as a pilot organisation in a national programme which pledges to support employment opportunities for ex-armed forces.

Around 120,000 working age veterans are currently seeking employment in the UK.

Professor Heather Tierney-Moore, of Lancashire Care, said: “We recognise and value the transferable skills, experiences and commitment of the people that have served in the armed forces and believe that these attributes support our own values within Lancashire Care and the wider NHS."
