Our CEO Tony Wright was delighted to receive the BSI Resettlement Award for Excellence in support of service leavers on the evening of October 31st 2017 at the Lowry Hotel in Manchester. "Its a great honour to receive this award on behalf of Team Forward Assist our volunteers and supporters".
General Sir John Chalmers McColl, KCB, CBE, DSO said:
“Forward Assist is an extremely active member of the Confederation of Service Charities. In the very short time they have been in operation they have made their considerable mark within the North East’s Armed Forces Community. Their inclusive approach, working with veterans and their families of all ages and abilities, means that their exceptional safeguarding policies are paramount within everything they do.
“As one of our smaller charity members, cooperation and collaboration is at the charity’s core with a proactive role within our Veterans in the Criminal Justice System Cluster. Forward Assist embodies the spirit of our Confederation and we give this highly effective charity our full support.”
