Greater Manchester Combined Authority held their inaugural Armed Forces Summit back in May, where the regions housing providers pledged their commitment to the Armed Forces Covenant and committed to deliver a ‘guaranteed minimum offer’ to veterans and their families.

Areas of focus included offering priority housing, employment and apprenticeship opportunities to both veterans and their families. To further enhance the work done so far, Greater Manchester Housing Providers will gather at the Imperial War Museum North on 25th October to further discuss how collectively as a group they can deliver against the covenant.

During the day, attendees will hear keynote presentations from the Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham and Warren Smith, Lord Lieutenant of Greater Manchester on how providers can support at both a regional and local perspective. Discussions will take place around pathways in to housing and collaboration with other support organisations, including Walking with the Wounded and Nacro to ensure we can signpost effectively.

The event will also showcase a number of suppliers and support organisations, providing a chance for attendees to learn more about how signposting can add value to their services and delivery against the covenant.
