Forces Support is a national bereavement and veterans support charity.  Its aim is to ensure that the parents, widows and children of families bereaved through a military death can access practical support throughout the UK and that they each have equal access to our support.  It also provides support to charities such as Launchpad, which reduces veterans' homelessness and helps veterans with transition to civilian life.  Forces Support was launched in March 2010, with an aim to create a national network of Forces Support outlets to raise the funds needed to run the practical support project Nationally.
