With your support, we can improve the lives of veterans and their families who are affected by the wide-ranging impacts of military service.

Our Veterans & Families Institute for Military Social Research (VFI), established just six years ago, is already building an international reputation.

Here, our experts are carrying out important research across a range of areas, from social policy and education to psychiatry and criminal justice.

We’re involved in NATO research on military to civilian transition and sexual violence, we’re represented on a number of important national expert groups and we’re a centre for international academic collaboration.
