Are you a spouse, partner or child (now 18+) of a military veteran living in England, Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland? If so the Veterans Family Study want to hear from you!

The UK Veterans Family Study (UKVFS) is a unique large scale tri-service (Royal Navy, Army, & Royal Air Force) research project funded by the Forces in Mind Trust (FiMT) and the Big Lottery Fund. The study will take place across the UK in 2021-22 and is being conducted in partnership with; Glasgow Caledonian University; Anglia Ruskin University; Veterans NHS Wales and Cardiff and Vale University Health Board; and Combat Stress.

The study is being conducted by Prof Chérie Armour at Queen’s University Belfast and Professor Nicola Fear at King’s College London and aims to understand the psychosocial determinants of psychological health and wellbeing for veteran families in the UK. The study involves a survey and in-depth interviews to explore the wellbeing of veteran family members and veterans as well as experiences of support and transition to civilian life.

Can you spare an hour to take part in a confidential telephone interview with a researcher?

If you get involved, you can choose to be entered into a prize draw for a £50 Amazon gift card.
