Meet Nikki, the founder of Battling On. She was a student on our Lloyds Bank & Bank of Scotland Social Entrepreneurs Scale Up Programme 2016, at SSE London.
Battling On is a social enterprise in Cornwall which supports veterans to reintegrate into civilian life. The veterans are trained and employed as mentors and instructors to support vulnerable young people from disadvantaged backgrounds and adults with disabilities.
Battling On won the Queens Award for Voluntary Services 2017 – known as the MBE for voluntary groups. The social enterprise expanded its provision from Cornwall into Devon opening a new Youth Space in Plymouth.
