A two-year research programme to look into financial hardship and food poverty within the military community has been launched.
Part-funded by the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust, the study will work closely with SSAFA to collect and analyse data from serving personnel, veterans and families of all three Services.
Lieutenant General Sir Andrew Gregory, the charity’s chief executive, said: “The evidence base of this research will enable us to plan and allocate future projects and resources even more effectively than before.”
