Purpose & Objective

The Veterans & Families Research Hub was initiated by the  Forces in Mind Trust (FiMT), Lord Ashcroft and Anglia Ruskin University to:

“Provide an accessible, contemporary and authoritative repository of UK and international research-related resources and literature on military veterans and their families, including transitions to civilian lives, that informs and stimulates research, policy development, improved service delivery and journalistic enquiry.”

The Hub has been developed to enable a broad range of international users to share in the creation, discovery and understanding of evidence-based information about the military veteran family.  It is designed for those involved in research and its outputs to create, communicate and collaborate more efficiently.  It will support statutory and charity organisations to create better targeted and more efficient policies and services, and will assist in developing a better understanding of veterans’ matters across communities.
