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

On Friday Rick will be jumping from a plane to raise money for a project aimed at helping improve the mental health of 8 veterans. A £1 donation from only a third of our followers would smash the target.

The number of women convicted of perpetrating domestic abuse has more than quadrupled in the past ten years from 806 (2004/05) to 4,866 (2014/15). Domestic abuse affects women and men. For every three victims of domestic abuse, two will be female, one will be male.

Domestic abuse is any type of controlling, bullying, threatening or violent behaviour between people in a relationship. But it isn't just physical violence – domestic abuse includes emotional, physical, sexual, financial or psychological abuse. One in four women and one in six men suffer from domestic abuse in their lifetime.

Just over six years ago Forces in the Community was created to support veterans and their families. To date we have worked with in excess of 500 veterans and their families.
The point of this post is to raise an issue about the treatment of lonely retired veterans and widows. Sadly it's aimed at the families who appear to be too busy. Having spent years looking after their families is it too much to ask for family members to provide regular contact?
To see the distress our older generations are experiencing is difficult to understand.
A lovely lady's husband died two months ago but she is unable to visit his grave. She is in her 80s and not mobile.
Her generation doesn't like to make a fuss. Does our generation not care? Do we not owe this wonderful generation more respect? Does 'family' mean nothing?
We are taking her to visit his grave on Sunday.

A serviceman is for life, not just for conflict. When the fighting stops so does the support but the battles often continue. Don't forget the men and women who have served and need your support.

It has been a privilege to meet with two lovely ladies, 72 and 84, who are both widows of RAF servicemen. Sadly both are experiencing suicidal thoughts. Over the next few months we hope to improve their wellbeing.
We support families, as well as veterans and reservists. If we can help you, or someone you know, please make contact.

Are you aware of the effects of Lariam? Over 17,000 British military personnel are said to have been prescribed Lariam at least once between 2007 and 2015.

Being a veteran helps you understand my past. What it isn't is a label for who I am.

Don't be a victim, never give any personal/bank details, especially PIN or passwords over the phone.
