The project 

Since 2014, DSC has been undertaking research which provides an overview and analysis of the UK’s armed forces charity sector, a segment of the voluntary sector which remained little explored or understood.

We’re now proud to announce the launch of our new and improved Armed Forces Charities website. Our research continues to be generously funded by the Forces in Mind Trust (FiMT).

The website

The purpose of this website is to provide an interactive research and evidence-base, freely accessible to all, including, policymakers, charities, media organisations and the public.

The site features:
An online research library of downloadable reports, info-graphics and research briefs;
Interactive Data, allowing users to explore information with graphical data;
A directory with information on UK armed forces charities.
