Forward Assist has, over the last few years, facilitated ‘veteran specific’ consultation /support groups in Newcastle, Gateshead, Sunderland, Northumberland and HMP Durham, HMP Kirkham and HMP Northumberland.

Forward Assist's 'peer led' support groups provide a much needed forum that facilitates the opportunity to meet and engage with other veterans on a daily or weekly basis. The Veterans 'Drop In' is facilitated by experienced and qualified staff and helps veterans  navigate and access the multitude of organisations and support services available to them in the civilian community. It also offers a safe environment and a chance to meet and be with others who understand the multiple and complex issues facing individuals that have served in the military. Forward Assist's Activity Groups also encourage group members to utilise the numerous transferable and existing skills they gained whilst serving in the Armed Forces and allow them the opportunity to get fit and healthy whilst reducing social isolation and loneliness.
