Welfare and support for families of serving personnel

 Everyday family life has its up and downs. Life for members of an armed forces family, whether they are regulars, reservists, or veterans, or their spouses, partners or children, can have additional worries, including:
  • stress around deployment
  • extended and repeated periods of separation from spouses and partners
  • social isolation from family and friends
  • additional and sudden caring responsibilities
The Armed Forces Covenant says that the whole nation has a moral obligation to the armed forces community and sets out how they should expect to be treated.
