“We hope that the proof of concept that is Positive Futures and the research findings offer fresh insight and recommendations to enhance support for individuals who struggle with transition. We are hugely grateful to FiMT, the Armed Forces Covenant, partners in Scotland and particularly the ex-service men and women who took part in the programme.”
The report also contains some recommendations for the Veterans’ support sector:
- Sustain and replicate the methodology of the programme through continued investment and effective marketing to ex-Service personnel and also their families
- Find ‘hidden veterans’ through the collection and sharing of data between services and develop more rigorous enquiries regarding Armed Forces history
- Higher levels of inter-agency co-operation and partnership across the military and non-military services’ sectors
- The Armed Forces look at introducing, based on the markers identified in the research, a mechanism to identify, and monitor those at risk of poor transition from point of application and throughout an individual’s career
