AFF contributes to military charity sector research

AFF has contributed to new research by the Directory of Social Change on how the Armed Forces charity sector supports military families. 

The aim of the research was to provide an account of the services these charities offer to families, and to identify areas in which the sector could continue to improve and develop its support to families.  

It looked at how many Armed Forces charities deliver support to service families, what types of support are delivered, examples of collaboration and what challenges these charities face.  AFF was pleased to contribute to this important research, alongside the RAF and Naval Families Federations.

AFF Chief Executive, Collette Musgrave, said: “The three Families Federations welcome this report and its focus on the assistance that Armed Forces charities provide to families. We are grateful to the Directory of Social Change and Forces in Mind Trust for highlighting the challenges that our Armed Forces families face, the sacrifices they make and their need for effective support.”

The report is being launched today [Tuesday]. For more info, see the research brief and infographic.
