Dave Anderson MP (Patron)
"I am both humbled and delighted to be asked to be a Patron for Forward Assist. We can never fully repay the debt we owe to these young men and women but we should all be ready to do all we can to help them in any way that we can.
We ask our service men and women to do extraordinary things on our behalf and we should ensure that when their work is over we do all we can to help them to face up to the new challenges facing them in the modern world, Too many are being let down and we need to learn from good experience and apply that knowledge. That's why I'm very interested in the concept if veterans courts as rolled out in the USA under the remit that, "no one will be left behind." I am also passionate about developing an international exchange project so that our great people can share their experiences with other former comrades and we can all learn from each other how best to support those who never let us down."
