Support for the Armed Forces

Making a home

There’s a lot to think about when you leave the forces.  Some of the things you’ll need to think about are:

  • where you will live
  • what and where you will work
  • where your children will go to school
  • registering with a doctor and dentist
  • what you will need to set up a home.
