Armed Forces Day 2018

May 23, 2018

Armed Forces Day on 30 June 2018 is a chance to show your support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community: from currently serving troops to Service families, veterans and cadets. 

There are many ways for people, communities and organisations across the country to show their support and get involved.

To help with this, toolkits with lots of useful downloadable resources have been produced. Within this there are also resources for Reserves Day 2018, which is on 27 June.


Whether you are looking for opportunities of how you can support and raise the profile of Armed Forces Day, organise and promote a celebration of your own, or simply join in the fun at an event near you, this toolkit is for you!

This toolkit will show how you can show your support, and how to publicise your events to local media. There are campaign messages and even a draft press release to help you get started.

Download the toolkit for more information and good luck!
