Family Life and the Armed Forces Community evaluation report

Programme Evaluations Service Families Veterans and carers May 2021

This evaluation explores the impact of both the Families in Stress and Removing Barriers to Family Life programmes, which awarded just under £4.34 million and just under £7.12 million respectively between 2016 and 2020.

The impact of the projects awarded under the two programmes has been analysed by the Directory of Social Change (DSC) and the Trust is delighted to share the stories of the grant holders and their work in supporting Forces families across the UK.

Beneficiary Survey Update

This report follows on from Family Life and the Armed Forces Community Evaluation by analysing the findings from a survey of beneficiaries of projects under the Removing Barriers to Family Life funding programme from the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust.

The survey asked beneficiaries about their perceptions of the projects, including questions such as if they felt that they would benefit and if they thought the project could be applied to similar Armed Forces families, and also questions on their experiences of accessing these projects during the COVID-19 pandemic.
