A survey to assess the need for support in the ex-service community in Worcestershire will come to an end on 18 April 2019.

Worcestershire County Council is looking for armed forces veterans living in Worcestershire to complete a survey, which will help to influence the way that veterans are supported in the county.

It is estimated that over 20,000 former service people are living within Worcestershire.

The survey is for anyone in Worcestershire who has previously served in the armed forces and will focus on time in the military, as well as the return to civilian life.

Kate La Barre Armed Forces Covenant Partnership Officer at Worcestershire County Council said, “Our military charity partners, voluntary and statutory services regularly engage with ex-service people in the county but gaining a better understanding of the wide variety of ex-service personnel in Worcestershire will help us to shape support around people that need it.

“The contributions to this survey will be a valuable tool in helping us improve support now and into the future.”

Last year Worcestershire was awarded pilot funding, along with Herefordshire, Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin Councils, to open veteran hubs. Information from this survey will also help shape Worcestershire's pilot hub.

The closing date of the survey is Thursday 18 April 2019.
