Research

The V Word and our community had the privilege of hosting and facilitating 3 Focus groups on behalf of research for the Scottish Veterans commissioner, Susie Hamilton. 

 

The focus groups aimed to empower women veterans and advocate for positive changes in support services.
The purpose of this was to give women veterans a voice, considering the historic lack of research and focuson this under-represented cohort'.


The 2023 strategy for the Scottish Veteran Commissioner is to ensure ALL veterans voices are heard including Women Veterans, therefore collaborated with The V Word's Visible #WeSeeYou campaign to generate these Focus Groups.


The findings within this report have been used to inform recommendations to Scottish and UK Government.

In January the Scottish Veterans Commissioner produced a further report informed from these Focus Groups and other work with recommendations for future improvements called - Anything But Uniformed.

 

Both reports can be downloaded below.
