New research published today by the Directory of Social Change (DSC) shows that armed forces charities provided at least 89,000 people with a range of family-related support in the year prior to August 2020, spending at least £68.5 million on services those families rely on.
The aim of this Forces in Mind Trust (FiMT) funded conference is to share insights from new research undertaken within the Armed Forces community into domestic violence and abuse (DVA) and explore how methods used can be advanced to improve the support offered to serving and ex- serving personnel and their families.
The Forces in Mind Trust (FiMT) is delighted to announce that it has awarded QinetiQ a grant of £265,744 to produce a longer-term employment outcomes report, which FiMT commissioned in September 2019.
