Here you will find the lastest news regarding Heroes Welcome.

As a consequence of the NACO Conference we have seen a sharp increase in inquiries and also the number of new members joining up. I have also heard from Gibraltar that they have been hosting a number of recuperating service personnel and using their Heroes Welcome Scheme to enhance the experience, also reports in from soldiers returning from the Falkland Islands say how much they have appreciated seeing Heroes Welcome stickers across Port Stanley and beyond.

In the UK I can confirm that the following are working up Heroes Welcome schemes (the following is for members info only and not to be published in the press) , Aberdeen, East Hampshire, Havant, North Somerset, Wetherby and Woking. Also my thanks go to Peter Howell of the Dorchester St George's Day Luncheon Club for generously sponsoring, Heroes Welcome In London scheme tailored to Black Cab drivers. ( ) The LTDA will be running a follow up to their 2010 pilot scheme .

It was a great honour to be invited as a guest to NACO 2013. The Conference was opened by General Lord Dannatt and Heroes Welcome was given a good plug in what was an excellent key note speech. Later during the conference I was able to work with Mark Axler and the Military Covenant Work Shop Team.

As a result we have now published a short guide to Heroes Welcome (attached) which will appear in the NACO Community Covenant Too Kit. As always I would like to thank NACO members for their continued support to the scheme.
