Supporting the Armed Forces in Rutland

Rutland has a long history of supporting Armed Forces families and personnel who live here.

Currently, we have 1st Military Working Dogs Regiment and 2 Medical Regiment based at St Georges Barracks in North Luffenham, while 2 Battalion The Royal Anglian Regiment (The Poachers) and 7 Regiment the Royal Logistic Corps are based at nearby Kendrew Barracks in Cottesmore.

Armed Forces Officer

Rutland has a dedicated 'Armed Forces Officer' whose role it is to support our Armed Forces Community.

If you are a serving member of the Armed Forces, a reservist, a veteran or a service family in Rutland, our Armed Forces Officer can help you with:

  • access to healthcare
  • education and school placements 
  • employment and training opportunities
  • access to housing and accommodation 

To contact the Armed Forces Officer, please email: armedforces@rutland.gov.uk or call: 01572 722 577.
