Public Policy and Research

Our Public Affairs and Public Policy team works across a number of strategic areas of importance to the Armed Forces community. Our policy work ensures that we base all our efforts on the latest evidence and views from our members, leading researchers, experts and the full spectrum of the Service and ex-Service community.

In 2014, we published the largest survey to date of the UK ex-Service community, looking at its size, profile and needs.

Research and Reports

All of our campaigning and policy work is based on research and evidence. The Legion has conducted a number of its own research projects over the past decade, including its Lost Voices report into hearing loss in the Armed Forces community.

Coalitions and partnerships

Many policy issues won’t just affect members of the ex-Service community, but also other individuals and groups in society. On these occasions, the Legion will work with partners across the sector.
