Shared Intelligence, in partnership with RAND Europe and Meri Mayhew, has been asked by Forces in Mind Trust to undertake research to evaluate the impact of the Armed Forces Covenant among local government and public sector organisations. This piece of research is similar to Our Community, Our Covenant, but will go into more depth to understand specific policy areas and impact.
It will focus on six areas: housing, education, children’s services, adult social care, employment, and health. This survey will focus specifically on health. The five other policy areas will not be included this time.
The aim is to learn about what health organisations are doing to deliver their Covenant pledges, and to ensure that members of the Armed Forces Community in local areas do not face disadvantage in comparison to other citizens when accessing and receiving healthcare. Understanding the barriers and facilitators to Covenant delivery, along with your perceptions around impact, is also being looked at.
