Nottingham Forest Community Trust and Nottingham Forest Football Club are committed to supporting our Armed Forces community. We currently hold the Ministry of Defence Employer Recognition Scheme – Silver Award, recognising the outstanding transferable skills that ex-service personnel can bring to organisations like ourselves. However, we want to do more for Veterans in our community so we are looking to develop a range of activities through the ‘Forest Forces’ programme to engage and support our Veterans.

Our next Forest Forces event will be held at The City Ground on Friday 24th January. We are inviting local Veterans to attend a coffee morning as a welcome back and to get some ideas about what type of events they would like to attend this year. The coffee morning will be held 9:30am-11am.
