Supporting the Armed Forces

Forces Connect Signposting App

A new Forces Connect Signposting App should now make it even easier for people who are in the armed forces or have served in the armed forces to get public services. The app is part of a two year project led by Surrey County Council which aims to make it easier for those who serve to get the help and support they may need. In fact, with the app the right support should just be four clicks (commands) away.

The Forces Connect project came about because it became apparent that people in the armed forces, or who have served in the forces, often find it harder to get to public services due to frequent moves, extended periods away from home and a lack of familiarity with what support is available to them.

The program is being financially supported by the Ministry of Defense Armed Forces Covenant, and is a cross border partnership with many other councils in the South East.
