AFF Listening to our Service Children survey

AFF surveyed Army personnel and their families to ask about their views on the impact of Service life on Army children. The survey focused primarily on the experiences of parents and their perceptions of their children’s experiences.

Parents reported gaps in learning and concerns about wellbeing but also reported that Service children acquire unique strengths as a result of their experiences. 

89% of respondents often consider, sometimes consider or have decided to leave the Army due the impact of Service life on their child.
