Armed Forces Outreach Service gets online

A new website for the Armed Forces Outreach Service has just launched.

The Service, which is administered by The Gateshead Housing Company, is a Local Authority Partnership covering Gateshead, Newcastle, Durham, Northumberland, North Tyneside, and South Tyneside.

From within a local authority, it offers a single point of contact and support to the Armed Forces community, including those who have left (regardless of how long ago) or are leaving.

Mick Downworth, Senior Armed Forces Community Outreach Worker at The Gateshead Housing Company, said: “We work closely with forces charities and other partners to get our clients help with housing, employment, debt advice, and health and welfare.

“We hope that a dedicated website will raise the profile of our service, ensuring that people who need our help know how to find us.”
