On 30th and 31st March 2017 the Forces in Mind Trust (FiMT) will be holding two briefing sessions in the South of England with the choice of Portsmouth (30th) or Andover (31st). The aim of these sessions is to help the Armed Forces Community, the Services Charities sector, and other key stakeholders and interested parties understand how FiMT can support ex-Service personnel, and their families, during their transition from military into civilian life. Whilst the event is aimed primarily at Directors, and the heads of welfare, research, grant-making and fund-raising, anyone with an interest in the subject of transition, including Trustees, is most welcome to attend. The briefings will be hosted by Chief Executive FiMT, Air Vice-Marshal Ray Lock CBE.
