In line with recent health advice, we have chosen to cancel all Forest Forces events for the foreseeable future. However, we are continuing to support and provide help to all of our Forest Forces veterans. From socially distanced home visits, fun online activities and so much more, click here take a look at what we’ve been doing to keep them busy during the Covid-19 pandemic
Thanks to the incredible support and funding from ABF The Soldiers Charity, we are able to provide our ‘Forest Forces’ programme which tackles social isolation in veterans by providing a variety of regular activities and events that brings people together from different backgrounds and armed forces constituents. From coffee mornings, comedy nights and day trips, we work with our veterans to come up with different initiatives that everyone will enjoy.
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 – Gold Award, recognising the outstanding transferable skills that ex-service personnel can bring to organisations like ourselves.
