The Army Families Federation are working in partnership with the University of Warwick on a research project, investigating the barriers to employment military partners and spouses face.
Army Families Federation state: ‘Spousal employment has been an important focus for AFF for many years, and we’ve worked hard to discover the main difficulties that families face when trying to secure employment for the non-serving members. However, we believe there is still more we can do, and a fresh tri-Service approach is needed to dig deeper into this ongoing issue. ‘
University of Warwicks, Institute for Employment Research (IER) will examine employment statistics, making comparisons with civilian counterparts to gain a better understanding of the similarities and differences faced by military families, as well as surveying and interviewing military spouses, key stakeholders and employers.
If you are the spouse or partner of a serving member of the Armed Forces you can participate and complete the survey by clicking the link below. It will take only 10 minutes to complete.
