This year over 7,000 spouses or civil partners of Regular Personnel completed FamCAS, equating a response rate of 25% (from the sample of 28,383 invited to take part).
Further information about the findings from this year's FamCAS can be found on this website.
FamCAS seeks the views of Armed Forces families so that Defence can review its policies to ensure Service families are not disadvantaged when compared to the rest of the population.
FamCAS data has previously influenced, and will continue to influence, policy in areas including:
• The Armed Forces Covenant
• The New Employment Model
• Community Support policies
• Welfare policies
