Forgotten Veterans UK was awarded charity status in 2017, and was set up to support Armed Forces Veterans in a number of ways. They recognise that people from all walks of life experience issues that they find difficult at times: former servicemen and women are no different.
The charity was created to support the military veteran community as a whole, and they recognise that it is not only the veterans themselves that suffer, so this care extends to spouses and other family members. FVUK welcomes all of those with a keen interest in supporting veterans.
We all benefit from the unselfish commitment of these veterans and their contribution to the protection of our nation. Whilst we weren’t there when they made those sacrifices, we can all shoulder a little bit of responsibility – “Remembering the past, helping with the future.”
Forgotten Veterans UK - Selfless Commitment to Others; it is something that they all believe in!
