The Forces in Mind Trust (FiMT) held a briefing event in Norwich on Thursday 6th October which was attended by over 30 people…

Attendees came from a wide range of sectors including the Armed Forces Community and the Armed Forces charity sector as well as other key stakeholders and interested parties who work to support ex-Service personnel, and their families. The President of Veterans Norfolk, General the Lord Dannatt, kindly welcomed the team to the region, together with many members of the organization.

The event, which was the latest in a series of regional briefings, was led by Chief Executive of FiMT, Air Vice-Marshal Ray Lock CBE, and supported by his executive team. A presentation at the event highlighted FiMT’s work to provide an evidence base which aims to influence policy making and service delivery, in order to enable ex-Service personnel and their families to lead successful civilian lives.

There was also an update on FiMT’s strategy, current work and priorities, and the Mental Health Research Programme. Attendees had the opportunity to engage with FiMT’s executive team and network over lunch, and to meet the Trust’s designated Chairman from December, Hans Pung.

FiMT would like to thank everyone who attended the event and made it so interesting and enjoyable.
