The Trust was formally presented with its Defence Employer Recognition Scheme Silver Award at an awards presentation evening in September at the Metropolitan Cathedral in Liverpool, hosted by the Reserves’ Forces and Cadets’ Association for the Northwest of England and the Isle of Man.

The award acknowledges the work of the Trust in recognising the diverse and specific talents that armed forces reservists and cadets can bring to the health service and the role the organisation can play in supporting training, work placements and employment in the Trust for the Armed Forces community.
