• Research in Northern Ireland

We are working to learn more about the support needs of Veterans in Northern Ireland. To achieve this, in 2015, Forces in Mind Trust (FiMT) commissioned a team of researchers based in Northern Ireland to conduct a large-scale study into the Health and Wellbeing of Veterans living in Northern Ireland.

The Northern Ireland Veterans’ Health and Wellbeing Study (NIVHWS) is a unique large-scale tri-service research project funded by the Forces in Mind Trust (FiMT) and the Big Lottery Fund.

The study began in 2015 and was completed in 2019. It was conducted by Prof Chérie Armour and a team of researchers from the Psychology Research Institute at Ulster University in partnership with the Northern Ireland Veterans Support Committee (NIVSC).
