Do you hear about people who can help but are not sure exactly who they are or what they do? Do you wonder what all the letters stand for when someone signposts you to CEAS for example? There is a whole MOD department that provides support for Service children. This page outlines briefly who they are and what they do for you.
The Directorate Children & Young People (DCYP) is the department within the MOD for policy and strategy relating to Service children worldwide. They have responsibility for the policy for Service children services and have various departments or projects to provide this support. These are explained in the following sections. If you would like to contact them directly, you can email RC-DCS-HQ-CEAS@mod.gov.uk
The Directorate Children and Young People (DCYP) pages on gov.uk are now live. Content for these pages has been collated by a range of subject matter experts and going forward they should become the ‘go to’ place for everything you need to know about DCYP and the services they provide.Back to top
