This report details the interim findings of the evaluation into the programme of support offered through the Military Advocacy Service.
mAs was developed in response to a gap in specialist provision for military veterans and their families. It is a service intended to recognise the complexity of its clients’ needs, and aims to offer more intense, specialist support than is available elsewhere. mAs aims to be a more open and flexible service, capable of addressing a wide range of issues. It offers a practical and resilience building model of support, designed to empower individuals who engage with the service to find solutions and deal with their life issues, whatever they may be, in order to help them get their lives back on course. mAs endeavours to ‘walk alongside’ all clients, assisting them in navigating the myriad of agencies and services available to them. seAp conveys belief in the power of its peer-delivered military advocacy model to transform people’s lives, and wishes for it to become a statutory service which would be available to all veterans in England.
