Spring Army&You – Service children and young people

Frequent moves between schools and homes, as well as separation from loved ones, are just some of the unique challenges that face Service children and young people. In this edition we explore these challenges and hear from family members about their experiences of juggling Army life and working with a young family.

We focus on the MOD Wraparound Childcare scheme, answering some of the most common questions, as well as looking at the support available when your family grows while posted overseas. In addition, we look at the option of boarding school for your child, including extra costs which can easily add up.

For those of you who are looking for a new job, in our ‘How to’ series we look at tips to ace your interview.

We’ve also got Dandelions pages, created with the younger members of your Army family in mind. And with the chance to win tickets to Grand Designs at ExCel London, blogs and a postcard from Edinburgh, there’s plenty to read about in the spring edition.
