As military partners, we’ve been a little bit forgotten. In the UK, Armed Forces Day is on the 26th of June this year. In April in America, they celebrate the month of the military child, followed by Military Spouse Appreciation Day on the 7th, just before their mother’s day – but what about us Brits? Why don’t we get anything? It’s time to make a change.
“If you think the members of the UK Armed Forces are impressive, you should see what their spouses, partners and other-halves are up to!”
This May, UK Milspo’s worldwide are coming together to celebrate their community and the launch of the Milspo Movement.
May marks the 3rd birthday of the Milspo Network. This global network supports UK military spouses, partners and other-halves to build successful and resilient businesses that can endure the nomadic forces life. Although the Milspo Network has its roots in business support, its strength and true meaning lie in the fact that it connects an isolated and dispersed community and inspires them to achieve something greater for themselves.
We will be supporting our amazing non-serving partners through the Milspo Movement in three very special ways throughout May.
- Primarily, we’ll support our members to build successful, transient businesses that can flourish and support their transient military world. So that they can, in turn, inspire and help others in our community.
- Secondly, we’ll be engaging with an extended community, focusing on promoting Milspo businesses to a greater audience. So that not only can Milspo’s make a more significant income, they can also, by association, showcase this amazingly inspirational community to those who may currently be unaware.
- And lastly, we’ll be promoting our community’s inspirational members at the government level through our work with the military Families Federations, the Partner Employment Steering Group, and individual government departments and our collaboration with Small Business Britain. To highlight their achievements and to help change opinion around our partner’s entrepreneurial ability.
Through online campaigns, meet-ups and showcasing, we plan to show the world just how impressive the partners of the UK Armed forces are.
And you can help…
