Thank you for your interest in our study of the longitudinal changes in support needs, health and wellbeing, and relationships of family members providing informal care to wounded, injured, or sick (WIS) personnel. We are now contacting participants who took part in phase 1 (2014-2015).
In 2014-2015 we investigated what support was available to families of WIS personnel from the Ministry of Defence (MoD), charities and other Government Departments and identified gaps in the current provision of support.
We are now conducting follow-up telephone interviews with family members of Service personnel who are wounded, injured or sick. The aim of this study is to examine whether the support needs of family members have changed over time. We are also investigating whether the health and wellbeing, and relationships of family members have changed since we last spoke.
Recruitment for this study has now started. Only participants who were interviewed in phase 1 are eligible to take part again.
