This report was produced for the Cobseo Criminal Justice Cluster Group and 1) details a comprehensive audit of UK-wide veteran offender specific services available across the criminal justice pathway 2) provides an analysis of both geographical and service gaps against evidence on service need.
This project report relates to the following piece of work:
The Veterans & Families Institute for Military Social Research (VFI) at Anglia Ruskin University was commissioned by the Royal British Legion Industries (RBLI) on behalf of COBSEO, the Confederation of Service Charities, to collect information on service providers who offer support to ex-Service personnel in the criminal justice system. The VFI worked with Her Majesty’s Prison and Probation Service (HMPPS) and have collaboratively produced a map of statutory and service provision. The map is an important resource for those working with veterans in the CJS.
The map is live and can be accessed here. (Use the link on the right hand side of the page to ‘Organisational Map’)
