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.
