Report - Young Carers in Armed Forces Families

Report: Young Carers in Armed Forces Families

The lives of service families can be very different from those of civilians. Children in service families (including reservists) experience a unique set of challenges including frequent separation from a parent on deployment or moving home and school. The SSAFA Forces Additional Needs and Disability Forum (FANDF) recognises that ‘The challenges of military life can be greater when a serving person or member of their family has a disability or additional needs, including experiencing PTSD or mental ill health.’ This report looks at the needs of children in Armed Forces Families with caring responsibilities for a family member with a disability or additional needs. It suggests actions to improve identification and support that consider the needs of young carers and the whole family.
