Our annual multi-disciplinary conference to showcase the work taking place across the South East Coast in support of the Armed Forces Community and the Armed Forces Covenant will be held on Tuesday 22 January 2019.
This is a whole day event with the main day starting at 10:00 and closing at approximately 16:30. Registration is from 09:00 giving you plenty of time to network and view the market stalls.
The feedback from last years’ event was excellent and we would encourage you to hold this date in your diary!
The conference will be co-chaired by Dr Nick Lake and Dr David Chesover, Chairs for the Sussex and Kent & Medway Armed Forces Networks respectively. The agenda for the day is still being finalised but we are pleased to announce that the following speakers have been confirmed:
It is planned that there will be a mixture of ex-service personnel and professionals (many of whom are veterans themselves) sharing their inspirational stories and triumphs. This event is offered free of charge and is becoming recognised as a milestone event for the work locally on behalf of the Armed Forces community.

Nominations for the awards can be made by contacting us with details of who you would like to nominate and why. Deadline for nominations is Friday 30 November 2018. The categories for the awards are:
There will also be opportunities for market stalls at the Conference and these can be booked using the form. Please note that numbers are limited so we would recommend that you book your market stall as soon as possible to avoid disappointment
Due to the high level of requests for market stalls we have had to stop accepting any further submissions.
