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

More support is needed for those who sleep rough. These figures help to explain why.

Nearly 1 million children and young people have been diagnosed with mental health problems in the UK. A more informed and supportive environment is needed or we accept failure as good enough.

It's never been more important to change the way men think and act around mental health: for many, it's hard to talk about their feelings, and more young men die by suicide than any other cause.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
