Dave Anderson MP & Forward Assist host Veteran Treatment Court Seminar in the House of Commons
Dave Anderson MP hosted a seminar in the Houses of Parliament to welcome a group of esteemed guests and experts from Little Rock Arkansas. In 2011 Tony Wright CEO of Forward Assist visited Little Rock as part of a research project funded by the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust. During the visit the concept of an 'International Veterans Exchange Programme' was born and teams on both sides of the Atlantic have been working hard to make the dream a reality. The group made up of experts in the Criminal Justice System, included Mayors and business leaders met to share their expertise in relation to Veterans Treatment Courts and Citizenship. In October 2013 the first group of veterans from the North East of England will travel to Little Rock as part of a two way cultural exchange project.
