Armed forces network
Armed forces network


We are working with partners across the county to deliver joined-up services and give real support to service personnel and their families.

Using public services can sometimes be complex and confusing, especially given the many challenges of service life. Whether you are a veteran, currently serving in the Armed Forces or you are leaving the armed forces, you and your family may need advice and information on issues like health, education, housing, employment, training and welfare.

If you encounter difficulties or negative experiences in accessing services from the council or any of our partners we want to hear from you. Please let us know what's working, what's not and how we can improve this site.
