Supporting the Children of Armed Forces Personnel
The Royal British Legion is at the heart of a national network that supports our Armed Forces community through thick and thin. As you may be aware, the Legion was created as a unifying force for the military charity sector at the end of the First World War, and still remains one of the UK’s largest membership organisations providing a range of support every day in communities like yours, across the UK.
The Armed Forces Covenant outlines the obligations that government and the nation owe to all those who serve, have served, and their families. The Legion has always supported local authorities in their efforts to help the local Armed Forces community, and as part of this work we have this month published a new guide titled, Supporting Service children in school in England.
The children of serving Armed Forces personnel face some unique challenges as they progress through school and we have pulled together information and best practice examples from across the country to help improve the experience of these children as much as possible.
The guide can be accessed via their website.
If you have any questions about this publication or any of the Legion’s work, please don’t hesitate to contact Bruce Holborn Bholborn@britishlegion.org.uk.
