The Veterans & Families Research Hub will contain a number of summaries of research, consisting of short briefs in accessible language, infographics and animations. These will be developed over time as the Hub becomes fully established and will be signposted as they are completed and hosted on the site. Snapshots provide plain language summaries of research and evidence relating to topics relevant to the UK Armed Forces community, veterans and their families. Bullets provide the key summary points of the Snapshot.

Organisational Delivery Map – Veterans in the CJS
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’)
