The Veterans and Families Institute (VFI) at Anglia Ruskin University has been commissioned by the Royal British Legion Industries (RBLI) on behalf of Cobseo, the Confederation of Service Charities, to collect information on service providers who offer support to ex-Service personnel in the criminal justice system. The aim of this project is to develop a UK-wide understanding of the service provisions available to veterans in the criminal justice system.
This information will be collected via an electronic survey which will be sent out to all service providers who provide veteran specific support to ex-Service personnel in the criminal justice system. For the purposes of data collection and monitoring responses effectively, we will be sending out the survey to service providers on a county-by county basis over a two year period. The RBLI will subsequently use this data for the production of a UK-wide Directory of Service Providers.
If you are a service provider who offers support to veterans in the criminal justice system please contact us on CJSveteransaudit@anglia.ac.uk to register your interest. Please provide us with your organization name, contact telephone number, and a brief outline of the services you provide to veterans in the criminal justice system.
