A research team at the University of York, working with Riverside, has been commissioned by Forces in Mind Trust to undertake a piece of research looking at veteran housing, housing pathways and homelessness.
The main aim of the project is to create a strategy or ‘No Homeless Veteran Roadmap’, to address UK veterans’ homelessness. The research is looking to identify interventions needed to support ex-Service personnel to find and secure appropriate housing and support, while also designing mechanisms that will ensure the Armed Forces can provide all Serving personnel with the best springboard to accommodation upon transition.
The research team are looking for veterans to participate in this study. They would like to interview veterans for up to an hour about your experiences in obtaining the right housing and support on leaving the services. Discussion would include: Service history, history of relationships while in (and out of) service, housing experiences and pathways, housing aspirations on leaving the service, housing information and advice services and what was most helpful in terms of advice and support.
