What is the FiMT Research Centre?
Established in 2017, the Forces in Mind Trust (FiMT) Research Centre has been created to help ensure that policy makers and service providers supporting the UK Armed Forces Community, can base their decision-making on the most accurate and contemporary evidence available. Initially led by Anglia Ruskin University, it started with the creation of the Veterans and Families Research Hub and was subsequently expanded into the FiMT Research Centre.
Since the 1st September 2022, the Research Centre has been operated by a consortium of RAND Europe and the King’s Centre for Military Health Research (KCMHR) at King’s College London, under a grant agreement with FiMT for the next five years.
The Centre aims to provide an accessible and authoritative evidence base on transition from military to civilian life, in order to inform policy and practice affecting ex-Service personnel and their families.About FiMT Research Centre
