ABF The Soldiers’ Charity
Since 2015, ABF The Soldiers’ Charity have supported X-Forces through a variety of Self-Employment discovery and awareness workshops. These events are free and are accessible to Veterans, Spouses, Reservists, Cadets and Armed Forces dependants.
- Self-Employment Discovery workshops allow beneficiaries to make an informed decision as to whether self-employment is right for them;
- Business Start-Up Skills workshops expand on the content from our Self Employment Discovery workshop and provides veterans, families, spouses, reservists and cadets from all services, who intend to start up their own businesses, specific training to enable them to launch and sustain it.
Brigadier (Retd) Robin Bacon, Chief of Staff ABF The Soldiers’ Charity:
“Soldiers transitioning from the Army to civvy street may sometimes need some extra support, especially when seeking new areas of employment. X-Forces provides an excellent service in equipping those who are looking for that next step in the business world with the necessary skills to give them a head start.”
“Fantastic! It reinforced my ideas and even led to new ones, plus gave me an understanding of what I need to do next!” Christopher attended a Self-Employment Discovery workshop in London.
“The course gave the chance to pick others’ brains and discuss ideas with likeminded people.” Liam attended a Self-Employment Discovery workshop in Glasgow.
