Abstract

This report looks at the potential barriers families face to a smooth transition to civilian life and future employment. Often the root causes of problems lie not in service, but before it. Some Service personnel and their spouses have come from difficult, even traumatic backgrounds, and some go back there after good years in the Armed Forces. Some leave school with poor qualifications or enter military life having had very little or no work experience. These are problems that individuals need to start to overcome whilst they are in the Armed Forces if they are not to be held back by them when they leave.
