The UK Armed Forces charity sector: a summary of provision

Today sees the publication of ‘The UK Armed Forces charity sector: a summary of provision’ which has been produced to support the recently published Strategy For our Veterans and Consultation Paper. 

The report is an evidence-based analysis of the profile of the Armed Forces charity sector, and the services and support offered by the sector to the Armed Forces community.  It draws upon the work of the Directory of Social Change’s ‘UK Armed Forces Charities’ project, funded by FiMT.  An important update ‘Sector trends’ will be published in January 2019.

 The dissemination of this Summary is intended to help inform those from other organisations and public bodies who offer services for Veterans and their families, but who are unfamiliar with the work of the Armed Forces charity sector. 

The Summary was written by Meri Mayhew, former Head of Policy at FiMT and now working on secondment from FiMT in the Ministry of Defence as the Charity Adviser to the Veterans Strategy.
