Armed Forces Day Family Event

Venue University of Derby, Kedleston Road, DE22 1GB

Event date: Saturday, 30 June 2018 at 10.00 AM
Running until: Saturday, 7 July 2018 at 5.00 PM

SAFCO, in conjunction with About Turn, would like to celebrate both the signing of the Armed Forces Covenant and our local armed forces community by putting on an educational event for all ages at the University of Derby on Armed Forces Day 2018. This will involve guest speakers from local charities and organisations, stalls advertising support and opportunities for armed forces personnel and their families, and activities for younger (and young-at-heart) visitors to get involved in.
We hope to build links not only between charities and people, but between these and the larger Derbyshire community.

There will be speakers throughout the event, as well as a series of workshops that can be booked on arrival.


The event will take place across two weekends, at two different locations:

University of Derby, Kedleston Road Campus, Saturday 30 June 2018

University of Derby, St Helena's Chesterfield Campus, Saturday 7 July 2018

Speakers and stand holders:

Lyndsay Khan - Vetreans Transition and Liaison Service

Neil Garratt - Department of Psychological Medicine

Andrew Townsend - Skillsforce for Veterans

David Corthorn - The Warrier Programme

Andy Roper - Combat Stress (Kedleston Road)

Darren Maltby - Royal British Legion (Kedleston Road)

The Royal Navy (Stand only)
