Academic study commissioned to research health and wellbeing of service children

We are delighted to learn that the Institute of Psychiatry at King’s College London has received £1million in funding from the US Department of Defense to conduct a three-year study to look at the health and wellbeing of children whose fathers either are, or have been, in the UK Armed Forces. We very much welcome this study and commend the project for at last looking specifically at the challenges being faced by service children, rather than overlooking them as another side issue. However, we are disappointed to see there is no planned commitment, research or attention from the UK Government in any way. Our recent report, ‘The Overlooked Casualties of Conflict’, found that there are over 175,000 service children in the UK, and we think these children deserve some consideration and understanding from our own Government as well.
