FORMER soldier Robert Hall is the first person to have been helped by Our Heroes Matter.

 The 29-year-old left the Army in 2007 and has struggled to find a permanent job and home since returning to Sunderland in January.

 But with the help of Our Heroes Matter he is getting ready to move into a new Hendon home with his girlfriend.

 He said: “It can be difficult leaving the Army because you’re not used to civilian life. I found it hard because there wasn’t really anyone for me to talk to and I didn’t know who could help.

“Our Heroes Matter is really good. It can help in many different ways.”
