Service children taking part in adventure activities as part of the Legion's support for service children

Children in Service families face some big challenges, such as emotional strain due to parents being deployed, frequent house moves and problems with admission into schools. 

We have explored these challenges and produced best practice guides looking at ways to support Service children in school.
