Supporting Health & Wellbeing Of Military Families

This week Public Health England launched professional guidance
aimed at health visitors and school nurses in identification and support
for military children and young people.

The guidance offers clarity on the key public health issues and unique
situations this group may be exposed to and how public health nurses
can support as part of the universal offer.

Although aimed at health visitors and school nurses, the pathway 
will be of interest to others working with military families including
early years, schools, primary and secondary care. You can download
the guidance here:

Service Families Section of RBL CivvyStreet Website

Please note: There is a  Service 
Families section of the 
CivvyStreet website.

The Royal British Legion's 
CivvyStreet service recognises
 that having a family member
 in the Armed Forces can present 
unique civilian employment 
hurdles for the rest of the family. With that in mind, we have developed 
a new section on the website to highlight the services we offer to the 
partners/spouses and working age dependents of anyone who is 
serving or has served in the British Armed Forces.


Partners/spouses and working age dependents have access 
to all of the employment services on the CivvyStreet site, which include:
  • CivvyStreet Jobs
  • 150+ free learndirect training courses
  • CivvyStreet Careers Advice service
  • CivvyStreet Funding Advice service
  • Employment Support Grant funding
  • CivvyStreet online CV builder
  • CivvyStreet Virtual Careers Fairs
  • Access to entire CivvyStreet knowledge base


Partners, spouses and working age dependents can 
register with CivvyStreet by clicking here.

7 days a week, 365 days a year to help families when incidents
