The Centre for Military Women’s Research (CMWR)

About the CMWR

In June 2021 Anglia Ruskin University’s Veterans and Families Institute for Military Social Research (VFI) published the nationally recognised ‘We Also Served’ Report, bringing together everything that was known in the UK about the health and well-being of women veterans. This report identified numerous gaps in our understanding of women’s experiences in the military community and the impact of these experiences on their civilian lives.

Subsequently, the Centre for Military Women’s Research (CMWR)’s was launched by the VFI, with a core mission to inform and improve the wellbeing of women in the military and veteran community through world-leading collaborative research and evaluation. By embedding principles of co-production with members of the military community, and collaboration with partners and stakeholders (academic, charity, third sector, policymakers) into all research projects, the centre undertakes high quality research to deepen understanding and improve provision for women in the military and veteran community.
