Louise Briggs, co-author of the ‘Lifting the Lid’ report says:
“We really hope that our families will use and benefit from this guide. It’s not only for use at the end of a service career it can be used throughout life as a serving family to plan for transition – to kick start the planning process, prompt thought and help families find relevant support and information. We’d really welcome feedback on the guide to support the development of future editions.”
The guide is now on its second edition and we will issue further updates as the implementation of JSP100 continues and to reflect the latest information. Keep informed on progress by by signing up to our eBulletin or following us on social media.
Tri-Service Families Transition project
We developed our transition information as a result of the Tri-Service Families Transition project, funded by the Forces in Mind Trust (FiMT), which sought to better understand families’ experiences of transition.
We are incredibly grateful to the families and serving personnel who gave their time to the project. The data collected through the surveys and case studies helped us develop this support for everyone and you can read the report, ‘Lifting the Lid on Transition’ here.
See here for positive examples of transition from the experiences of our families who took part.
