Thanks to the incredible support and funding from the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust, 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 communities. 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 the 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 such as ourselves.

In line with the latest government guidelines and social distancing rules, we’re excited to be able to continue to deliver our walking football programme at The Forest Sports Zone.
This slow-paced version of the beautiful game is a great way for over 50’s to get active, make friends and improve their physical and mental wellbeing. Walking football provides opportunities to play competitively in organised tournaments or simply socialise and have fun while reconnecting with the game they love.
The Nottingham Forest Walking Football programme opens up a range of physical health benefits for participants. It’s also a great opportunity to make new friends and meet new people while keeping active and improving physical wellbeing. The sessions, held weekly at The Forest Sports Zone, allow participants to re-discover their football skills, learn new ones and have fun in the company of like-minded people.
