The Hampshire garage helping forces veterans

Ex-forces veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) have found a lifeline at a garage that runs an apprenticeship scheme with a difference.

Forces Re-engineered, based in Andover, Hampshire, operates an environment that accommodates for the sensitivities of PTSD, keeping triggers such as noise sensitivity to a minimum and offering counselling to those who want it.

Otherwise, the garage offers the same service as any other.
