WORKING IN PARTNERSHIP
At Forward Assist we believe in working together with other charities and organisations to ensure our Veterans get the best support and help possible. We are very lucky to work with a large number fantastic organisations, check out a few of them below:
My name is Polly Brennan from Adventurous Coaching.
I am an energetic coach with vast experience in promoting personal growth, resilience and well being. I enjoy working with organisations and people from all walks of life. I help resourceful people (like you and me) who feel stuck or want more to tap into their inner resourcefulness, get clear on what they want, uncover possibilities and hold themselves accountable for making change. I have learned from experience that adopting an adventurous approach to coaching can uncover more possibilities. Link to website for more information

"Forward Assist approached us regarding a particular client they were working with. Having researched our ethos and company needs they were able to identify a Veteran who they believed would be ideal for us and they were right! We were so impressed with the individual we created a job for him and he has been excelling at the role showing great loyalty and passion for the company. We were so impressed with the Charity we also donated funds as part of the Female Veterans Research programme - exceptional charity with fantastic clients. ."
