Support for armed forces personnel - Support for armed forces personnel

Leaving the armed forces can have a huge impact on your life and your family. Not only must you find a new job and housing, but also settle your family into schools, jobs and social activities.

A wide range of services are available from Bassetlaw District Council and our partner organisations that can help with your resettlement.

Bassetlaw District Council has marked its support for the local services community by adopting an Armed Forces Community Covenant.

The covenant is a voluntary statement of mutual support between a civilian community and its local armed forces representatives. It not only recognises the contribution of serving personnel, their families and veterans but importantly it identifies practical ways the Council can help them access support to help them adjust to life after leaving the services.

In turn, the armed forces promote ties with the local community and offer support wherever they can.

Other partners and local groups, have also signed up to the principles in the Community Covenant, including Nottinghamshire Police, local NHS services, Nottinghamshire Fire & Rescue, Job Centre Plus, and BCVS on behalf of local voluntary and community services.

You can read the Bassetlaw Community Covenant for additional information.

There are a range of national and local support services listed here. There are also local organisations that welcome ex forces personnel and their families to join them.

The Armed Forces Champion for Bassetlaw is Councillor Tony Eaton.
