Moving Forces: Staying Active in Civvy Street

'Moving Forces' helps military veterans, families and serving personnel to stay physically active by providing fun, relaxed and sociable activities all over Greater Manchester.

At Moving Forces, we work hard to provide a huge variety of fun, relaxed and sociable activities to suit people of any age, ability or fitness level.

We work with trusted partners to provide free or discounted activities where veterans and their families can get out, have fun and socialise with other members of the armed forces community. Our activities currently include football, climbing, yoga, Tai Chi, running groups, walking groups, family fun days, golf, sailing, kayaking and much more!
