Our annual multi-disciplinary conference to showcase the work taking place across the South East Coast in support of the Armed Forces Community and the Armed Forces Covenant will be held on Tuesday 22 January 2019.
This is a whole day event with the main day starting at 10:00 and closing at approximately 16:30. Registration is from 09:00 giving you plenty of time to network and view the market stalls.
To find out more about the event and book your place please visit our sister website.
It is planned that there will be a mixture of ex-service personnel and professionals (many of whom are veterans themselves) sharing their inspirational stories and triumphs. This event is offered free of charge and is becoming recognised as a milestone event for the work locally on behalf of the Armed Forces community.
This is a 1 day training course which holds a focus on military culture, which can be difficult for those on the course and the training tries to hold a military feel, taking place in Army Barracks and all communication in military format.
This training is also an opportunity to understand why you should support the work, what resources are available and the need to network.
Dates and locations will vary across Kent and Medway and further information about the training can be viewed on our Champions page.

Following the success of Together we CAN make a difference 2017, the Armed Forces Networks for Sussex and Kent & Medway hosted a similar event on Tuesday 23 January 2018 at the Amex Stadium in Falmer.
The event showcased the work which has been undertaken during the last year to improve services and outcomes for the armed forces community across Sussex, Kent & Medway and Surrey. It highlighted the benefits of working in partnership and breaking down the barriers between organisations to support the individual.
The Lord Lieutenant for East Sussex was in attendance and alongside Colonel Ian Adkins, Deputy Commander for the Reserves 11 Infantry Brigade, presented Awards to Service Champions across Sussex and Kent & Medway in recognition of their work with the armed forces community.
Featured left are Colonel Ian Adkins, Kate Parkin, Lord Lieutenant for East Sussex Peter Field and Dr Nick Lake.
Themes for the day included carers and families, the covenant in practice, integrated care/support and preventative initiatives.
You can access the presentations and view the Service Champions Award Winners by visiting the Sussex Armed Forces Network website.
