A year ago, Harborough District Council launched its Military Survey findings, at a special event at The Symington Building, following a consultation with the Armed Forces Community.

The survey was carried out in partnership with Rutland County Council and South Kesteven District Council.

In response to the findings, a number of actions have been ongoing to address the issues raised and provide further support to those who need it.

Cllr Rani Mahal, Harborough District Council’s Armed Forces Champion, said: “This is a fantastic source of information for those people within in the Armed Forces Community. A huge amount of work has gone into collating this information and sharing it online; it will provide valuable advice, signposting and support especially at this challenging time.”
