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 five years until 2027.

The Centre aims to ensure that research evidence about the experiences and needs of Serving personnel, ex-Service pesonnel, and their families, is at the heart of decision making so that it can inform and transform policy and practice to enable succesful transition to civilian life post-Service.
