ExFor+ C.I.C are a Non Profit Organisation registered as a C.I.C (Community Interest Company) any donation is always welcomed, all funds donated will be used to aid the ExFor+ C.I.C objectives. (Reasoning for Non Charitable status provided below*)
Donations will be used to develop ExFor+ C.I.C services, these services are for the benefit of the community along with supporting individuals and their families, that have served or supported our country, either within HM Armed Forces or as members of the Uniformed Public Services for at least one day.
Donations will be utilised to employ individuals that leave service that are deemed as being WIS (Wounded, Injured and Sick) or difficulty in gaining longterm and sustainable employment, this is to aid them with their transition from service, they may stay with ExFor+ C.I.C. or look to move onto a further employer. The Veteran will be supported in all aspects of the employment transition and if future employment does not work out for them, they can return to ExFor+ C.I.C. as an employee. This offers a continuous support service and employment for veterans.
This will in-turn be providing members of the United Kingdom, including those that have served and their family units with the help to provide them with longterm and sustainable careers and life by aiding their physical/mental health and wellbeing.
One of our aims at ExFor+ C.I.C is to also enable social change and develop individuals that are currently unemployed, offenders, individuals having health difficulties (Physical or Mental health) or facing hardship, to re-enter into employment or to achieve a better quality of life.

A C.I.C is a step between a business and a Charity and will work for the support of the community.
At present it is the intent of ExFor+ C.I.C. to operate and undertake business related activity to develop surpluses to undertake the objectives of ExFor+ C.I.C. further.
Charitable status may be pursued in the future, if so we will provide advanced notification on our website of the proposed change in legal formation.
