RFEA - The Forces Employment Charity
RFEA – The Forces Employment Charity exists to provide life-long, life-changing support, job opportunities, and training to service leavers, veterans and reservists, irrespective of circumstances, rank, length of service, or reason for leaving. Founded in 1885 and operating across the UK, we have the specialist knowledge and understanding to bridge the gap between military life and civilian employment. We work in partnership with other organisations and employers who, like us, respect and value the unique qualities and abilities of all those who have served.
