Developing a better understanding of the emotional support needs of Service families

10 May 2012

As the UK Armed Forces are going through unprecedented restructuring to deliver a new employment model, this report draws together what we know about how the families and children of Service personnel are supported to deal with the emotional and psychological impact of deployment and training.

It examines the services already in place for families and identifies areas where more evidence, about both the need for services to support families and the effectiveness of these services, is necessary.

Audience: Ministry of Defence, those working with Service personnel and their families.
