In line with recent health advice, we have chosen to cancel all Forest Forces events for the foreseeable future. However, we are ensuring to get in touch with all of our participants offering support and help to those who need it.

In the mean time,  click here to see some amazing photos of our participants at Forest Forces events over the last year.

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 April. We will be delivering our ‘Dream Big’ talk and taking you through the amazing back-to-back European Cup journey of Nottingham Forest Football Club. If you are interested in attending this event please get in touch via email ( with your name, age, your role in the armed forces and a contact telephone number.
