Forces in the
Community is a local charity committed to supporting ex-service personnel
and their families to reach their full potential. The charity delivers tailored
employment guidance, housing advice, mental health support and provides a supportive
environment in which to develop. The charity supports the clients and their
families, who are often disadvantaged and at a point of crisis in their lives.
We provide a community focal point. The aim is to transform lives.
Our primary focus is helping clients to gain employment. We identify transferable skills, 'civilianise' military language, provide CV writing advice and interview guidance, liaise with employers and provide job search support.
We work with many organisations including The Royal British Legion, SSAFA, RFEA, NHS, DWP, Remploy and the Probation Service.
