Welcome To Forces in the Community

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. Our 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.

Visit Our Drop-In Centre Today…

Our drop-in centre is located at 2 Cross Street, Beeston, Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, NG9 2NX.

The centre is open 5 days a week, offering help and support to veterans, serving personnel, wives, husbands, partners and their families. From our centre we offer advice and guidance, with qualified careers advice and training.

The centre is staffed mainly by volunteers, all of whom have some connection (either past or present) to the military, giving them an immediate insight into the experiences of many of the people who come to the centre.

We also have links to mentors, who are also veterans that have successful civilian careers. We also offer signposting to housing support, help with addiction, community legal services and other service charities.

For more information on our charity and the services we can provide, call Forces in the Community today on: 01159 220 320

Since opening the centre in January 2013 we have supported over 500 veterans and their families. Many are employed, housed and experiencing better mental wellbeing.
Our fantastic volunteers are committed to improving the lives of others.

Sadly Robin Green, one of our great volunteers, passed away on Wednesday evening. Robin supported the charity for several years and always could be relied upon for his support and particular brand of humour. He was immensely proud of his service in the Royal Navy and his work with clients for the charity. Robin lived life to the full but suffered a heart attack a few months ago and another on Wednesday.

RIP Robin. Lest we forget.

"The report exposes the way the MoD and ministers ignored the strict controls – known as harmony guidelines – on the frequency and length of operational tours of duty that are designed to protect the mental and physical health of troops."
