This Snapshot summarises themes and issues relating to families within the UK military community. The Snapshot sets out policy responses and current structures of support, presenting research evidence where available.
Snapshots are designed to aid understanding of the complex issues at play in relation to the Armed Forces, and to support decision-making processes by bridging the gaps between academic research, government and charitable policy, service provision and public opinion. Snapshots are aimed primarily at those working in policy-making and service provision roles for the Armed Forces, and are also useful to those seeking facts, figures and informed comment to empower a more objective discussion among the wider population, including the Armed Forces community and the media. The purpose of a Snapshot is to review and interpret research and policy and to set out concise, plain language summaries to facilitate understanding and perception.
