The Impact of Service Life on the Military Child – Research launch

The Veterans and Families Institute for Military Social Research present the findings of their report on the issues facing naval families.

About this Event

Hosted by the Veterans and Families Institute for Military Social Research (VFI), Anglia Ruskin University.

In June 2020 the Naval Children’s Charity commissioned the VFI to undertake a review and update of their seminal 2009 report ‘The Overlooked Casualties of Conflict’. In this interactive webinar, the VFI will present the findings of this project, exploring whether the issues faced by military children have changed since 2009. This will be followed by a Q&A panel session, including the Lead Investigator from the VFI, a previous beneficiary/current Trustee of the NCC, and policy representatives. Following the launch event, the full report will be available for download from the NCC website.
