NATIONAL charity Veterans Council is unveiling AFCOM Directory, a new website for the Armed Forces community.
The AFCOM Directory provides a single point of contact for health, mental health, education, employment, housing, welfare and legal services, with qualified staff able to support users through the process where needed.
Assurance for service users
Every service provider listed on the site has been vetted to ensure they are aligned to the Armed Forces Covenant and understand the issues faced by serving personnel, veterans, Reservists and their families.
The charity is encouraging GPs, professionals and organisations from the public, private and third sectors working with the Armed Forces community to register their services on AFCOM Directory.
In the case of healthcare, all registered organisations must comply with the relevant NHS, NICE or CQC guidelines.
A prestigious launch
The directory was launched to a select audience of stakeholders, trustees and members of the Armed Forces Community at Veterans Council’s prestigious Centre of Excellence Awards at Manchester’s Imperial War Museum.
Des White, Veterans Council Chairman, said: “The Centre of Excellence Awards is the biggest event in our annual calendar, so it seemed fitting to use the Awards as a platform to show our unique AFCOM Directory, one of our most exciting projects to date.”
“This Directory fulfils a dire need within the Armed Forces Community – the need to connect with assured service providers who understand their needs.”
