Sporting Force was established to help ex-service men and women make the transition from a life in the military to life as a civilian through social engagement, participation in sport, voluntary placements, training and qualifications into a variety of jobs in the sports and leisure industry. Life in the military is an active life and by working with sports organisations we can offer opportunities that appeal, ignite a passion and help create a new life outside of the services. All the opportunities we offer are inclusive and can be adapted to meet the needs of our disabled veterans. Our veteran centric approach ensures that sports qualifications and employment are successful and relevant to the beneficiary.
