Government funds driver training programme for military veterans

A charity that supports armed forces veterans in finding work in transport and logistics has received a £100,000 boost from the government, writes Chris Tindall.

The grant has been provided to Veterans into Logistics (VIL), which gives bespoke training for former military personnel who want to pursue a career as HGV drivers.

VIL said the funding from the Office for Veterans’ Affairs will help it significantly uplift its training throughput, increase staff numbers and treble the amount of existing training.
