Armed Forces Community Hub Survey

Closed 20 Nov 2020

Opened 30 Oct 2020

Overview

The Armed Forces Covenant represents a promise by the nation that those who serve or have served, and their families, are treated fairly. See more at: www.afcnorthamptonshire.co.uk.

Local partners would like to develop ‘Armed Forces Community Hubs’ across Northamptonshire for members of the Armed Forces community (those currently serving, Reservists, Veterans and family members).

The proposed Armed Forces Community Hubs would provide a warm and welcoming place where any member of the Armed Forces community could go to for advice, help and comradeship - all free to access and attend. The Hubs would offer activities such as walking groups and of course refreshments.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we would also like to develop interactive Virtual Armed Forces Community Hubs that would offer the next best thing.

The Virtual Community Hubs will allow people to chat to each other and with local community groups. Plus, we are teaming up with Adult Learning to offer online training courses such as Healthy Eating on a Budget for Families and Emotional Resilience as well as links to partner organisations.

We intend to offer support and training in order for people to develop their digital skills and thus be able to access the Virtual Community Hubs.

We are keen to hear from members of the Armed Forces community, but welcome views from those in the wider community.

This survey will run from Friday 30 October to Friday 20 November 2020.

If you have any questions or enquires about the proposed Armed Forces Community Hubs, please contact the Armed Forces Covenant Partnership Officer via covenant@northamptonshire.gov.uk or 0791 2891735.
