May, 2021
Article:

This report explores the impact of various aspects of Service life on children and the wider military family.

Abstract

In 2009 the Royal Navy Royal Marines Children’s Fund (now known as the Naval Children’s Charity) published the Overlooked Casualties of Conflict Report. This ground-breaking document brought together research and expert opinion to highlight the experiences and challenges faced by military children. Importantly the report identified 10 key areas that were of particular relevance. This new report was commissioned by the Naval Children’s Charity (NCC) with the aim of considering the changes in the research landscape and to assess the opinions of a range of key stakeholders, subsequent to the original publication in 2009.
