Armed Forces reservists community connect sessions
Our community connect networking sessions bring together regional NHS Armed Forces reservist champions and representatives from military units and supporting organisations to share ideas, experiences and good practice. The sessions provide a space for attendees to share success stories and discuss the challenges faced when supporting reservists and members of the wider Armed Forces community in the workplace.
Anyone within the NHS is eligible to attend, provided they have an interest in supporting the Armed Forces community. Join our sessions to:
- share contact details and network with regional Armed Forces representatives
- feedback actions on your Armed Forces agenda
- share good practice
- hear updates from our team
- share calendar dates for local insight days, recruitment events and other relevant meetings
- improve the support you offer reservist and Armed Forces community employees
- build your reputation as a forces-friendly employer.
Details of upcoming community connect sessions will be made available on our Events page.
Step into Health employer engagement surgeries
Join our employer engagement surgeries on the first Tuesday of each month to check in with the Step into Health team and connect with other organisations pledged to the programme.
Each session will address a specific aspect of the Step into Health programme. Themes will be decided by attendees and cover topics such as connecting with Armed Forces organisations, work placements, delivering insight days and Step into Health in an ICS environment.
We aim to encourage open conversation between organisations across England and welcome all who are pledged to the programme to network and share experiences, successes and challenges when delivering Step into Health.
Sessions are run on the first Tuesday of every month and last 60 minutes. They are hosted by the Step into Health programme team using via Microsoft Teams.
