Forces in Mind Trust and the Local Government Association have commissioned a survey to see how well current and former military service personnel are being supported and how this can be improved.
John Shivas from the Armed Forces Covenant Team at the Ministry of Defence says:
“… Since the launch of the Armed Forces Covenant we have seen good work all around the country across a range of services in support of our Armed Forces Community. But we need to be better at capturing and sharing those examples. As a result Forces in Mind Trust and the Local Government Association have commissioned Shared Intelligence to run a review of how local Covenant pledges are being delivered to help identify and better share good practice.
“This project offers a real opportunity to help shape how the Covenant will be delivered in the future. The results of this work will allow service providers, by more easily sharing the experiences of others, to better make the case for prioritisation and delivery of their own local Covenant pledges and allows members of the AF community to have their say. So please take the time to complete it…”
The aim of the Forces in Mind Trust is to provide an evidence base that will influence and underpin policy making and service delivery in order to enable ex-Service personnel and their families to lead successful civilian lives.
Each year approximately 20,000 people leave the UK Armed Forces and for the vast majority they transition successfully into the civilian world. However, some need additional support, and it is these that Forces in Mind Trust exists to help.
