If you left or will be leaving the Forces at the age of 50 or over, or you are an employer in the UK, we want to hear from you.

This research project aims to investigate the employment challenges and barriers faced by servicemen and servicewomen of all ranks aged 50 or over at the point of discharge from the UK Armed Forces. It is being conducted by the Centre for Research into the Older Workforce (CROW) on behalf of the Officers’ Association and Forces in Mind Trust. This project has been approved by the MOD’s Research Ethics Committee.

Individuals from within this demographic and UK employers are invited to participate in a series of focus groups and an online survey.
