Planning for transition
There are many reasons why you might not feel this prepared – for instance you might be leaving at short notice or perhaps you don’t want to leave.
Early Service Leavers (ESL) and Wounded Injured and Sick (WIS) Service Leavers and their families should be signposted at an early stage to bespoke routes through resettlement, with specialised help from Personnel Recovery Units for WIS and CTP’s Future Horizons scheme for ESL as examples. Your Service Leaver should ask Resettlement staff on the unit if they think this hasn’t happened.
For more ‘standard’ transitions try our Timeline (based on a two year resettlement period) to help you get started with your planning. Use it alongside the one in the Service Leavers Guide to cover all the SL has to do as well.
