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

We encounter many veterans who are experiencing financial difficulty. Asking for help isn't easy but it is the best thing you can do. Call us and we will do our best to help and support you.

Sadly Gareth took his life in June last year. He acted in the critically acclaimed Two Worlds of Charlie F and spoke candidly about his personal situation after the show to us. He desperately wanted support but didn't feel there was anything available to him in his area. The battles continue for many veterans long after service life has finished. More needs to be done to support people experiencing distress to reduce suicidal ideation.

Such a sad loss. RIP soldier...Lest we forget.

We are going to be entering Long Eaton carnival again this year on the 17th June. The theme for floats is movies. Any suggestions on which movie we should do?
