FiMT’s decision to re-design its website reflects its increasing role as a strategic influencer. Established in 2011 by a £35 million endowment from the Big Lottery Fund, FiMT’s mission is to enable successful and sustainable transition by funding evidence generation and influence activities that help to further its mission. As the Trust increases its influence and reach, it needs a modern website to share the range of evidence, reports and information available to all with an interest in ensuring that ex-Service personnel make a successful transition.
Ray Lock, Chief Executive, Forces in Mind Trust, said, “We are delighted to award the contract to The Bureau. They impressed us with their understanding of FiMT’s work, and their vision for how our website should look and operate. This is an existing time in FiMT’s development, and our website is a critical tool in ensuring we deliver our mission”.
Simon Fairway, Director, The Bureau, said “We’re thrilled to be supporting FiMT’s important work in enabling ex-Service personnel and their families to successfully transition into civilian lives. The project neatly draws on our existing experience with funders and frontline organisations working on evidence-based service improvements, particularly around the wellbeing and mental health of veterans”.
