Children in military families

Angela Ruskin University (ARU) has published a report, commissioned by the Naval Children’s Charity (NCC), examining issues that affect the wellbeing of children in military families including: the impact of deployment-related separation on service children; the impact of mobility; the impact of parental illness, injury or bereavement; and dealing with stigma and bullying.  Separately, the Service Children’s Progression Alliance has published a news story discussing the publication of a research paper looking at the impact of parental deployment on the wellbeing of British Army children in the pre-school year.
