Supporting the Armed Forces community through research, educational provision and community engagement.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to support the military community through innovative and high quality research, educational provision and community engagement.


Our vision is to:

Provide subject matter expertise and a focal point of consultation to our partners within the North West of England for the betterment of military veterans and their family’s wellbeing.

Support a vibrant, inspirational and innovative learning environment to provide a rewarding academic experience to:

  • University of Chester personnel and academic partners;
  • Clinical, welfare and military staff who provide care or services to the military community;
  • Local authority partners engaged in the care and support of veterans;
  • The veteran population.

Grow a robust research profile that will have a positive impact on veteran’s health and healthcare at regional, national and international level. This profile will embrace new technologies and creative methodologies to address issues that negatively affect the wellbeing of the military population. 

Be dynamic and enterprising in our response to new opportunities.

Develop positive wide-reaching partnerships with higher education institutions, businesses, third sector organisations including charities, veterans associations and the military population.
