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.
