Social Inclusion

Social Inclusion

Research has shown that members of the Armed Forces community are more vulnerable to loneliness and isolation, due to the unique challenges faced. Armed Forces Community HQ was founded to provide a safe space for all members to be able to connect with their peers, and be supported to live fulfilling lives. As well as a busy schedule of events and activities hosted at the HQ in Wigan, we follow the ‘Five Ways to Wellbeing’ and work with individuals to understand your needs and access relevant offers.
