Armed Forces Week
This year, Armed Forces Week will offer the British public the chance to discover more about the work of the UK Armed Forces with each day dedicated to celebrating a different part of the military.
Launching on Monday 22 June, each day of Armed Forces Week will highlight different parts of the UK military, from cadets and military operations to kit and veterans, with opportunities to learn more and to #KnowYourForces.
Reserves Day will take place on Wednesday 24 June to recognise the valuable contribution reservists make to the Armed Forces.
Armed Forces Week will culminate in the twelfth annual Armed Forces Day on Saturday 27 June, when hundreds of events, from fêtes to parades and barbecues to street parties, will be held across the country.
The NHS employs a significant number of healthcare professionals and non-clinical staff who are members of the Armed Forces community. This includes reservists, service leavers, military spouses, dependants and cadet forces adult volunteers.
There are many ways that you can show your support for the Armed Forces throughout the week:
