A CAMPUS in Wilton supporting veterans is once again accepting admissions after suspending its activities due to Covid-19.

Entrain Space aims to help veterans and those leaving the military to transition into civilian life.

It provides 44 serviced flats and access to a fully equipped training suite. The scheme is open to those planning their move on from the services now, early service-leavers or those who have left for some time but need a fresh start.

Matthew Bell, the founder of Entrain Space, said: “It is great to be able to restart our admissions here in Wilton – we are keen to get on with ‘Entraining’, which we think is needed now more than ever to secure good jobs and brighter futures for veterans as part of the post-Covid fightback – no one should abandon their aspirations or goals because of recent events.”

The facilities are integrated within the wider residential communities of Wilton Hill and Erskine Park.

Plans to open the Entrain Space café and develop the on-site enterprise hub can also now resume.

The veterans’ facilities were officially opened in December 2019 by Her Royal Highness the Countess of Wessex, and also visited by Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

By the time the Covid-19 pandemic restrictions hit in March 2020, more than half the flats were occupied.

Lockdown meant further admissions, as well as most training activities had to be suspended, and unoccupied flats were made temporarily available to house people in need of emergency accommodation as part of Wiltshire Council’s Covid-19 response.

This is now being wound down, releasing spaces once again for ex-military occupants.

Alex Rochester, the operations manager at Entrain Space said: “We provide that bridge to help residents save for a deposit, get help with an issue they may be struggling with, or simply have the time and space to try out some different career options and get support from other peers and our specialist staff team.”
