The South Yorkshire Armed Forces Covenant Project: Mapping of the Armed Forces Community across the region

Sheffield City Council, along with Rotherham, Doncaster and Barnsley Local Authorities bid successfully for a Covenant Fund grant, under 'Priority 3: Strengthening of Local Government delivery of the Covenant' to enable a work stream including Sheffield Hallam and York St John Universities.

This document presents the findings from the first of four community capacity building components of the South Yorkshire Armed Forces Covenant project. As the first of two reporting outputs- this current report contains the results of the research project component 1: 'Consultation and Mapping survey research', which is underpinned by a newly emerging 'human rights as perspective' theoretical framework. See section 2 for methodology and theoretical framework details. The second reporting output will be published in July 2019 and contain the results of an evaluation of the York St John Military awareness training, an evaluation of the Covenant group's Action Planning activities and a profile of the South Yorkshire Armed Forces Covenant model.
