Armed forces survey launch, we need your help!

31/01/2018

 

Current and former Armed Forces members in Northamptonshire are being urged to help shape services by taking part in an online survey. The survey by Healthwatch Northamptonshire aims to help the Armed Forces Community Covenant Partnership address issues such as the return to civilian life and health problems and draw up the first ever map of the size and scale of the Armed Forces community in Northamptonshire.

This community includes regular serving personnel, volunteers, reservists, ex-forces members and family members of past and present servicemen.

Vikki Barr Armed Forces Covenant Officer said: “Local data on Armed Forces members is not currently known, making it hard to create targeted local services.”  

“All too often, the transition into civilian life can be challenging, with many veterans suffering from poor mental health and unemployment.  This survey will be invaluable in informing the design of support services in Northamptonshire.”

  • 8 February - Swansgate Shopping Centre (all day)
