Stuart Cole, Project Manager DSC:
‘The impact that education and employment can have is measured in more than just qualifications or status; increasingly, these areas define our quality of life. We are proud to present an analysis of those charities which support the educational and employment needs of the armed forces community.’


Ray Lock CBE, Chief Executive FiMT:
‘FiMT was established to enable ex-Service personnel and their families to make a successful and sustainable transition to civilian life. It does this by funding reports, such as this Focus On series which provides independent, evidence-based knowledge that can be used to influence and bring about change where needed, from policy through to service delivery. The clearly detailed evidence in this report offers an important and unique insight into the education and employment support provided by the Armed Forces charity sector across the UK.’
