Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
The objective of the company is to carry out activities which benefit the community and in particular to the provision of support, mentoring, training and counselling of Ex-Military UK Personnel to assist them find work and adjust to civilian life. As we are not registered as a Charity nor draw down funding, we have setup costs and running costs aligned with this venture and we hope that this is something that you may be interested in donating or supporting, however small a donation will help enormously. Our aim is to set up within our premises in Spring 2019, a communal area to give Ex-Military UK Personnel, their wives and partners the opportunity to meet up and to form self-help groups, build friendships and share experiences. The groups may then identify areas where information and advice on different issues may be needed and Back to Back Careers C.I.C will then be instrumental in locating speakers and recognised advisors who would be willing to give their time to support the group or individual. We will also, when an individual is ready, offer to help with CV writing, hold mock interviews to help build up confidences, as well as role playing, face to face interviews or via the telephone. Sometimes when a partner is going through an anxious period in their life, they have a habit of internalising problems, even close family members may not be aware of problems happening within their family circle, so being able to speak with like-minded people may be of benefit.
