Pathways

Armed Forces CovenantForces Connect South East is a partnership across Hampshire, Kent & Medway, Surrey and Sussex to promote understanding and awareness within public authorities and related sectors, including health, of the issues which affect the Armed Forces community in the South East.

The project has been funded via the Armed Forces Covenant and part of it is building on the work which had already been completed within Sussex in regards to the development of pathways of services that support the Armed Forces Community. This has been done in parallel to the Service Champion Training which is also being carried out across the South East.

Forces Connect is the app which has been produced based on the pathways produced by the Armed Forces Network. The app started with only information for Hampshire, Kent & Medway, Sussex and Surrey. However, more counties are joining the app, making it one of the easiest ways to access information and support for the Armed Forces community.
