We are very proud supporters of the Oppo Foundation, established to help ex-military personnel, their families and dependants on their return to civilian life. We're hugely impressed by the work of Kayam Iqbal and the Oppo team and so it felt like the perfect charity to get behind and we're proud to support them in the incredible work they continue to do with ex-military personnel.
About the Oppo Foundation
The OppO Foundation has been established to help ex-military personnel, their families and dependants on their return to civilian life. Their objectives are to provide support in practical areas such as:
- Employment and self-enterprise
- Education and training
- Health and wellbeing
It is also important to recognise that support is not a one-sided affair.
The OppO Foundation provides support to military personnel returning to civilian life and also supports the civilian community to welcome and benefit from their return.
The Oppo Foundation Key Projects
The armed forces are a way of life. A tight knit family where you have a firm sense of belonging, you know what your purpose is and you have the committed support of friends, colleagues and compatriots who will always look out for you.
On leaving the forces all of this melts away and ex-military personnel are often left feeling isolated, without a sense of purpose and not knowing who to turn to for support.
The Oppo Foundation's vision is to change that experience by replacing the supportive, family culture of the armed forces with a similar supportive network back in Civvy Street.
The OppO Foundation provides support through a series of projects which will be developed over time and fully resourced.
Our current projects are:
