Our Services

At Forces in the Community, we know that the transition to civilian life can be a struggle and that it's often a challenge coming to terms with your new identity. If you are unsure as to what to do next or just want a safe and confidential place to talk, don't hesitate to contact us. We'll do our best to point you in the direction of people who can help, many of whom are ex-forces themselves and understand what you are going through.

Housing

When you leave the Armed Forces you don't just leave a job, you leave a lifestyle and more importantly (in a large percentage of cases) a home.

Therefore the challenge is twofold, employment and a home. Quite often this will mean relocating, a hard task in itself when it often feels like you’re moving from one 'world' to another!

Employment

Employment options are many and varied. The key once leaving the service is to maximise the skills and experience you have gained to make the most of the opportunities available to you. We can help you achieve this by CV writing, coaching in interview skills and career and training signposting.

Health Issues

Keeping healthy in mind and body after your discharge from the armed forces is perhaps one of the most challenging problems you’ll face. Once you leave the armed forces, whatever support network you may have had disappears. But your problems, which could range from serious and often life-changing physical injuries to mood disorders, PTSD and other issues may remain. You deserve recognition, rehabilitation, support and compensation so you can get on with your life.

Emotional Support

Many of the issues that you or members of your family may be facing following your time in military service may be personal and emotional in nature. Few of us discuss these things with our family and friends (let alone our GP) and many just don't consider the idea of seeking outside counselling and help.

Emotional problems that come with readjusting to regular life following discharge can range from relationship issues or breakdown, feelings of grief or loss, to anger management issues or alcohol and substance abuse.

Talk to us at Forces in the Community if you want any sort of confidential emotional support.

Legal Advice

Through our relationship with Shoosmiths Access Legal, we are able to offer the Defence Discount Service which provides discounted legal services to serving and reserve members of the armed forces, veterans and their families, bereaved family members, cadet forces and NATO personnel.

Employment & Support Allowance (ESA) Payments - we have been made aware over the last week that the DWP have suffered a bit of "glitch" with their systems and in a very few cases, ESA payments have not been paid to claimants. If you have been affected by this please contact the ESA support line, they have so far been able to resolve each issue on the same day.
We stress that this is only happening to a minority of claimants and you must wait until your ESA is due to be paid before contacting the support line.

"For the first time in my life someone listened to me and took a genuine interest in how I was feeling. I was reassured that my feelings were my truth."
