Devon County Council has developed a website to improve the way in which members of the Armed Forces Community can access information on a wide range of topics, including health, housing, education and leisure.
The Devon Forces Family website was launched by the Devon Armed Forces Community Wellbeing Partnership (DAFCWP) in order to give local armed forces families a ‘one stop shop’ guide to all local services. It is thought that there are approximately 107,000 veterans living in Devon.
The support is open to all members of the Armed Forces Community, including people getting ready to leave the forces, recent service leavers, older veterans and family members.
The site has been developed in recognition of the support and help that military families and personnel need once they have left service, especially if these families have relocated.
The Devon Forces Family website is funded by the Armed Forces Covenant fund. The Armed Forces Covenant is a promise from the nation to all those who serve, and their families, that they will not face disadvantage due to that service.
