Advocacy for the armed forces community

Transition from military to civilian life can be difficult but there are people who can support you along the way. 

The Dorset Armed Forces Covenant Programme

The Dorset Armed Forces Covenant Programme supports:

  • current serving personnel (including reservists)
  • families of serving personnel
  • veterans
  • bereaved family members.

They can either support you themselves, make introductions for you to other services, or support you to contact other organisations. Services are available to support you with every aspect of life including housing, employment, finances and health.

To access the pan-Dorset programme please email
