The survey targeted people in South Kesteven, Rutland and Harborough with a connection to the British Armed Forces and was developed by Armed Forces Officer Michelle Woolman Lane along with Healthwatch Rutland.

South Kesteven district councillor Dean Ward, Armed Forces champion, said how rewarding the response was.

“The enthusiasm of people who took part in the survey proves just what a strong military community we have,” he said. “It’s been a privilege to reach out to all those within the services community living in South Kesteven.

“I am delighted that so many people from our military community have come forward to take part in this survey and want to thank them for trusting us with so much information. Those connected to the Armed Forces are a really important part of our district and this has been a golden opportunity to listen to their concerns.

“I am looking forward to hearing the survey findings when they are published in the autumn.”

The survey report will be published in October.
