Forces Wives Challenge

Wednesday 31st March 2021

Forces Wives Challenge (FWC) is a fresh and exciting social enterprise that unites women with partners in the armed forces through adventure and challenge.

It is a positive and proactive organisation, attracting members from across the breadth of the diverse and talented community, creating networks and broadening opportunities that empower people to achieve more than they believed possible.

Uniting Forces Wives

Whilst every FWC member is unique, everyone battles against similar challenges: loneliness, loss of identity, isolation and disconnection. Through adventure, FWC creates opportunities to combat these challenges and to enjoy the same sense of belonging, pride and camaraderie experienced by their military partners. By recognising and harnessing the unique blend of skills and experiences they forge a team; a team with purpose, that celebrates drive, ambition, strength and above all, provides support for each other.
