The Oxford Brookes research team has been awarded £60,000 by the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust for the 18-month ‘Supporting ALL to Thrive’ study.

The Trust delivers high impact programmes that support the Armed Forces community. It is both a charity and a public body. The Trust administers the £10m Covenant Fund each year as well as other government grants that support the Armed Forces community. The Oxford Brookes ‘Supporting ALL to Thrive’ study has been awarded funding under the Ministry of Defence Armed Forces Family Fund: Research Grant Programme.

The Armed Forces Covenant is a Government promise that recognises the commitment and sacrifices made by those who serve or have served in the Armed Forces and their families. It recognises that Service personnel and their families give up certain freedoms that may be taken for granted by other families. For example, serving personnel may be posted to different places, sometimes every two years and at short notice, and parents may be deployed far away for weeks or months at a time.
