Following the success of the 2018 Award-Winning Widows programme, X-Forces Enterprise (XFE) are delighted to announce the launch of a bespoke Confidence and Skills Building Workshop in support of Armed Forces Widows, Widowers and their immediate families.

The one-day taster workshop offers the chance for attendees to explore a range of confidence building skills, in a supportive environment with like-minded people. Attendees will gain valuable tools and know-how to help make important decisions on their next steps. Supported by Forces Pension Society Charitable Fund and created in association with the War Widows, Royal Navy and Royal Marines, Army and RAF, Widows Associations the one-day workshop entitles all attendees to a further 12 months of ongoing support provided through the XFE network of support.

For those attendees who would like to develop enterprise skills further, XFE provide a four day follow on programme.

X-Forces Enterprise CEO Ren Kapur said:

“We are delighted to launch this bespoke taster workshop providing a handrail of support to widows; helping them decide whether they want to go down the route of employment, self-employment, taking on a charitable role or consider further education.

“Winning the “Best Financial Inclusion or Outreach Initiative Award” at the Financial Innovation Awards 2018 was an amazing achievement. However, I am always humbled by the feedback from the attendees of the first programme and to hear about the positive impact it has made on them.”

Programme attendee Katy Clark said:

“The team are helpful, knowledgeable and supportive. I met like-minded people. I now feel empowered, knowledgeable and excited about the future!”
