We are pleased and proud to be able to host our Charity Partners within the Corps’ Headquarters at the Point in Central Milton Keynes.
We are an eclectic mix of charities, but we work well together and always support each other.
The Group picture was taken at the official launch of ReturnMK with Secretary of State for Defence Mark Lancaster MP in the middle.
ReturnMK provides a music, multimedia and life-skills service for young people that has been developed from years of work with young people and hopes to be a “Model of Excellence” of which numerous young people can benefit. Our service attracts all types of young people from all varieties of life.
A message from Jason Lawrence, Director of ReturnMK
“I was first introduced to Colin Harmsworth from The Joint Civil Aids Corp in October 2017 and straight away kicked off a relationship of mutual respect, trust and comradeship.
Colin offered our Organisation a space for us to deliver our courses with only knowing very little about our organisation, but gave us the chance to prove our worth in the community.
We currently work together to run a Charity Hub in which we offer charities a space where they can deliver their services for the community. The Point has served us very well for this purpose and we bounce off each other and help each other out as much as we can to create that community base.
I have seen JCAC deliver their services, made referrals and even allowed my own children to utilise the organisation’s services. The values JCAC stand for are values necessary for life.
I enjoy working with JCAC and look forward to a lengthy relationship with the organisation.”
The Disability Trust (Autism Spectrum Partnership)

The Middle Eastern Cultural Group
The MECG is a community group newly established in the city of Milton Keynes, as a result of the increasingly growing Middle Eastern community, and the need for activities and services to support that growth.
They are working discreetly to create awareness of the richness of the Middle East Culture and Tradition and maintain the relation between the new generations and their heritage. It is working with other organisations and groups to insure cohesion and understanding within our diverse society.
The Mix MK
The Mix is an inclusive, accessible social gathering which presents opportunity of direct support for attendees. This is a drop-in service in Milton Keynes that provides a place for meeting and sharing information about mental health services. The informal meet ups promote self-help, peer support networks and further service developments.
