First wave findings launch

University of Salford | Room 3.10/3.11 | MediaCityUK | Salford M50 2HE
Thursday 19 April 2018  | 17.00 – 20.30

This event presents the first-wave findings of our longitudinal project funded by the Forces in Mind Trust (FiMT). This ground breaking project represents the first substantive research focusing specifically on veterans’ experiences of the social security benefits system in their transition to civilian life.

The event will include a presentation by the University of Salford and University of York research team, followed by a panel response including Dr Alan Barrett, Clinical Lead, Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust Military Veterans’ Service; Mark Knight, Armed Forces Lead, Department for Work and Pensions (DWP); and a representative of the Covenant Team from the Ministry of Defence.

As part of the project, we have also been working with Graphic Design students in the School of Arts and Media at the University of Salford. Delegates will also therefore have an opportunity to view some of the initial illustrations produced by the students based on anonymised excerpts from some of the interviews.

This event is free to attend, but registration is required for catering purposes. Please click here to register your attendance. If you have any questions about the event or the project please contact Dr Lisa Scullion: l.scullion@salford.ac.uk
