Connecting Forces Project for young people


As a veteran your child is eligible to take part in a new project, Connecting Forces, for 16-19 year olds.

The project helps enables your child to connect with others from the service community in a safe and secure environment:
– Young people can connect with like-minded peers from Armed Forces backgrounds to make friends and keep in touch via group chats;
– Opportunities to question ‘experts’ in careers or education to support their next steps;
Contribute to discussion forums led by university students and recent graduates from military – backgrounds;
– Access specially assigned resources and live events throughout the year.

The project is funded by the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust and led by the Service Children’s Progression Alliance, in conjunction with Brightside, the leading experts in running online projects for young people.

All communication takes place on Brightside’s online platform and app which complies with the latest data protection regulations. For safeguarding purposes, all communication on the site is monitored by Brightside staff. These are fully trained withan enhanced DBS check.

This project runs until 30th November, 2022.
