The purpose of this study is help understand the impact of military life and deployment on the health and well-being of children of both former and serving UK service personnel. This study is a follow on from similar research conducted with children of military fathers (the KIDS Study). This time the team are visiting fathers and their families to explore in more detail at how things are today for military families. This will allow us to have in-depth information to reinforce what we have at present. This can then help policy makers and service providers to better understand issues currently facing the defence community. By providing detailed insight into the experiences of military families, our research may influence how best to further support military fathers together with their children and partners.
