Ray Lock CBE, Chief Executive, FiMT:

The purpose of FiMT is to enable all ex-Service personnel and their families to make a successful and sustainable transition back into civilian life. This detailed report provides an important insight into the physical health support a relatively small number of charities provide to the armed forces community across the UK.’

Tom Traynor, Head of Research, DSC:

‘The aim of the Focus On series is not only to highlight the vital work our armed forces charities do for their respective beneficiaries, but also to create a better knowledge base for policymakers and these charities to continue to act in the best interests of our armed forces community.
