NEW signage has been unveiled in Bishopton by a social enterprise which provides support to injured and out-of-work veterans.

Scotland’s Bravest Manufacturing Company designed, manufactured and installed the signs for David Wilson Homes’ Dargavel Village development.

With a factory based within the Erskine Veterans Village Estate, in Bishopton, the team produces commercial signage and bespoke engineering.

And as the Royal British Legion Industries’ social enterprise, it has enjoyed a fruitful partnership with Barratt Developments, which is David Wilson Homes’ parent company, since 2018.

Many of the veteran workforce at Scotland’s Bravest Manufacturing Company are living with a disability or condition which affects their everyday life.

The company helps them to retrain, gain independence and earn in a supportive environment.

Michelle Ferguson, director of Scotland’s Bravest Manufacturing Company, said: “The vast majority of veterans transition from the forces with relative ease. However, far too many can face severe challenges in the civilian world.

“Often struggling with physical and mental health conditions, some veterans are unable to secure meaningful employment – but that’s where we step in.

“As the leading social enterprise in Scotland providing employment to our nation’s heroes, doing business with us genuinely changes lives.

“Time after time, David Wilson Homes and their parent company Barratt Developments have shown a sincere commitment to supporting the Armed Forces community through our work.

“Without doubt, they are true leaders in the private sector when it comes to supporting veterans and their families so that they have the opportunities they need to lead fulfilling, independent lives.”
