The Army Parents' Network was launched on 28 Sep as part of national inclusion week. The aim of the Network is to support Serving Army Parents and the Chain of Command by providing access to information, advice and peer support. The page will promote information on relevant topics (including policy updates and useful articles) and will also act as a forum for individuals to ask questions for other members to provide advice – all questions asked can be posted anonymously. This Facebook group is a closed group with access limited to Serving Army personnel only. If you would like to join please answer the two questions when you apply and your application will be authorised. https://m.facebook.com/groups/1199748646820329

Aldershot Job Centre Plus - vacancies for kitchen, bar and waiting staff at The Shepherd and Flock pub
Tuesday, 20 February 2018
Based in Aldershot, we offer supported housing to single veterans who are homeless or at risk of homelessness and who have support needs.
Many of the Mike Jackson team are ex-servicemen and women who understand the unique needs prevalent to veterans. It’s a friendly, understanding, stable base that helps transform lives.
First actions might be provision of food, new clothing and shelter; subsequent interventions might involve prolonged periods of counselling, drink/drug rehabilitation and medical treatment. Further support frequently involves education, retraining or the acquisition of a new skill. Help is given to identify employment opportunities and, when they are deemed ready, individuals are helped to move into new homes – furnished and decorated by Veterans Aid.
What makes us different?
We understand the challenges faced by military families every day, and how Military life is different from that of civilians. We will undertake any problem and offer a solution that reflects your lifestyle as a serving member of HM Armed Forces. Our proposals recognise the fact that you will move regularly, have fluctuations in your pay and sometimes not be contactable! Kit insurance, Mess Bills, Local Overseas Allowance, Get Yourself Home etc, all things that appear on your pay slip that will not be understood by civilian debt advisors. The simple fact is your training has probably not included managing your financial affairs, and as a result you may be in a spiral of debt and fearing for your career, relationship and future.
Let us help. We can be contacted from 0800 to 2000, 7 days a week on (01732) 365380
There are plenty of ways you can use your Railcard, for both long and short trips. Better still you can use it anytime on weekends, Public Holidays and during the week. The only restriction is that if you travel before 10am Monday to Friday (except during July and August) a minimum fare will apply. For more details see minimum fares.
Your HM Forces Railcard will save you 1/3 on many tickets. As with most things in life, there are some exceptions, so take a look at the ticket types you can and can't make savings on with your HM Forces Railcard.
