Forward Assist

About Us

Forward Assist believe that by promoting ‘active citizenship’ former and Serving servicemen and women can become ‘key stakeholders’ within their chosen communities and in doing so utilise their transferrable skills. By giving veterans the chance to ‘do good in the community’ through specific and well supervised projects and by supporting those less well off than themselves, we are able to re-engage with our veterans, provide educational and employment opportunities whist increasing self esteem and aspirations. In doing so the veterans gain the respect of the civilian community, significant others and as a result become active citizens once again. Forward Assist and About Turn CIC have gained recognition as a National Open College Network (NOCN) accredited training centre and will deliver a host of ‘veteran specific’ training courses as well as ‘mentoring’ courses for veterans in both community and custodial settings.
