Counting the Costs

Counting the Costs

Principal Investigator:           Prof Neil Greenberg
Postdoctoral researcher:      Dr Julia Diehle


The purpose of this study is to establish the total number of wounded, injured or sick military personnel or veterans (as well as their dependents and close family members) who might require support from either the state or third sectors (or both) following their service in the British Armed Forces during the UK’s recent conflicts in Iraq, Afghanistan or elsewhere since 1991. This study is funded by Help for Heroes.

We will make use of existing data sets, reports and Freedom of Information Act 2000 responses in order to provide comprehensive information about who might need

  • Support with physical issues
  • Support with mental issues
  • Support with social/welfare issues

The results of this study will help the state and the third sector to plan for the likely volume of beneficiaries over the coming years, as well as their needs and the timing of their decision to come forward and seek support.

The study will run over 23 months and has started in November 2014.  First results will be presented in autumn 2015.

If you have any questions about the study please email Julia Diehle:
