About our support for the Armed Forces Community in Hampshire

Our aim is to improve the prosperity of service personnel, their families, veterans and reservists

Our support is underpinned by the Armed Forces Covenant and Civilian Military Partnership.

Research and studies help us to understand the significant economic impact that the Armed Forces Community makes.

The MOD, Hampshire and Oxfordshire County Councils commissioned a report: The Economic Significance of Military Activity in Oxfordshire and the Hampshire Economic Area. For further information please see the Overview paper and Technical report.
