Through the data insights drawn from the Map of Need, the team at the Northern Hub for Veterans Research have developed reports that explore the geographic dispersal of veterans and Armed Forces families, and some of the challenges that they face

Finance, money and debt

Identifying and predicting the geographic distribution of financial hardship in Scotland’s veteran community

This open access article explores how data from veterans seeking financial help from SSAFA in Scotland can be combined with other data sources to indicate high population clusters of veterans living in higher than average areas of deprivation.

Geographic dispersal

The exploration of the dispersal of British military families in England

It highlights where they are clustering and the paucity in those areas of Service family support; suggesting the need for a more modern approach to Service family support.
