The British Forces Resettlement Services, known as BFRS, provides help, advice and support to members of the Armed Forces, both past and present, and their families. We do this by fostering links with local communities and securing effective employment opportunities for people leaving the Forces. BFRS works closely with a wide range of support organisations who specialise in helping former Service personnel.
Founded by Harry Dean, Ex LE Officer (RA), the organisation is headed by a number of business and resettlement experts who have experienced the 'transition process' first hand, having previously led careers in the Armed Forces.
BFRS’s aim is to offer information, support and a direct route to finding lasting employment to ex-Military personnel and those considering/in the process of leaving the Forces.
We provide guidance throughout the Military to Civilian transition and beyond, making connections between former Service personnel and employers, franchise opportunities, vocational training opportunities, employment training and resettlement advice organisations.
BFRS is a not-for-profit Community Interest Company (CIC). A CIC is a private limited company whose objectives lie in benefiting a community rather than financial gain. BFRS acts purely in the interests of the Armed Forces Service leaver community.
