The Hamilton Project is one I whole-heartedly believe in and endorse. They give those who have given so much to our Armed Forces a chance to build a new life away from the Services.
The Hamilton Project is a business support programme that teaches the process of enterprise and supports service-leavers and veterans who want to set up their own business. The project is named after the late Richard Hamilton and was created as a tribute to his memory. The programme provides learning material in easy-to-digest modules and fact-sheets and couples that with mentoring from experts.
The initiative is delivered free-of-charge to service leavers and veterans. And it works: in a major field trial with new businesses in 2003, the programme was shown to dramatically improve the sustainability of new businesses.
