About Us

Mark Bruce

"We Unite and Support our Veterans and their families to allow them to build themselves a Sustainable future back into our communities with your help"

Veterans Stand Together is a 'non-profit' organization, founded in early 2018. Veterans Stand Together has the passion, vision, and desire to ensure we become a leading national and international 'non-profit' organization with a charitable outcome providing the provision of long-term employment opportunities within the civilian workplace for our brave military, police, emergency and security services personnel.

Men and women from the military, police and security services spend years adapting to roles and gaining valuable skills experience. They develop qualities that are readily transferable and in demand within the civilian workplace. However, transitioning back to civilian life can be a challenging period for many Veterans each year. This is where the Veterans Stand Together can help offer critical and much needed support in assisting Veterans with the transition inevitably facing them and making the first steps towards civilian employment as positive and as smooth as possible.
