Parents serving in HM Armed Forces can also access the Children's Education Advisory Service, an information, advice and support service established specifically for Service parents. It covers any issue relating to their children’s education, including special educational needs.
'Forces Connect' - Mobile App
A new mobile app has been launched to signpost members of the armed forces community in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough to support and advice in their area.
The free Forces Connect app is aimed at serving personnel, veterans, and their families as well as public sector organisations, who can now find local services and organisations offering support in just four clicks.
Having tested the app, John Phillips, Veteran and Coordinator for Project Nova said: “The app was easy to download and very easy to navigate. It provides in-depth information and links. I feel that it is a really good tool with everything a veteran would need. All in all, this is a really good app with everything you would need easily to hand”.
To download the app, search “Forces Connect” in Apple’s App Store or the Google Play Store.
