star this property answer text <p>This Government is determined to protect and improve the morale of the Service personnel who contribute and sacrifice so much for our country. That is why we enshrined the Armed Forces Covenant in law and put our people at the centre of policy making and delivery. We have introduced a raft of measures to improve Service life, including improved welfare support, the £200 million Forces Help to Buy scheme and a permanent commitment to the Armed Forces Covenant through a £10 million per annum fund which starts this year.</p><p> </p><p>These efforts are yielding clear dividends, and I am pleased that the recently published 2015 Armed Forces continuous attitude survey demonstrates an increase in officers who rate their morale as high - up from 41% in 2014 to 45% in 2015 - while the same figure for other ranks remains level at 39%. It is also noteworthy that the number of Service personnel who would recommend others to join the Armed Forces has increased from 41% to 47%. These figures are encouraging, especially when viewed against the context of the tough decisions around headcount reductions and pay restraint.</p><p> </p><p>I recognise that more remains to be done, and we will continue to strive to ensure that our Armed Forces feel valued and that their contribution and sacrifice is recognised, including through the development of the New Employment Model which aims to produce a modernised offer that reduces the impact of Service life on individuals and their families. We remain on course to meet Future Force 2020 targets as we move towards the agile and flexible force needed to keep us safe at home and abroad.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p><strong> </strong></p>

The Ministry of Defence is pleased to support them and does so with over £150 million of funding each year. 100 new cadet units were established under the Cadet Expansion Programme in english schools during the last Parliament; along with a target to reach 500 cadet units in schools by 2020.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Armed Forces families are an integral and valued part of the Armed Forces community. We ask a great deal of our Service personnel and, in return, they deserve to have confidence that their families are appropriately supported.</p><p>Over the last five years this Government has achieved significant successes in this area; we amended the schools admissions code to allow schools in England to allocate a place in advance of a Service family arriving in the area, and enabled infant schools in England to admit Service children over the class size of 30. In addition, we allocated £20 million in LIBOR money in Financial Year 2014-15 to support childcare infrastructure for Service families.</p><p>One of the key tools we use to understand how Armed Forces families feel about the policies which affect them is the annual Families Continuous Attitude Survey (FAMCAS) which monitors the views of spouses and civil partners of Service personnel in key welfare areas, including employment, schooling, healthcare and accommodation. The results of the survey are used to help develop and track military personnel policies. In excess of 7,000 people completed the 2014 FAMCAS survey, with the responses showing improvements in areas such as full-time employment rates for spouses which increased from 33% in 2010 to 40% in 2014 and the numbers owning their own home, which increased from 55% to 58% in the same period.</p><p>In addition to the use of FAMCAS, officials work closely with each Service, the Service Families Federations and Armed Forces charities to understand and respond to family issues. At a senior level, the Families Forum meetings and Service Charities Partnership Board meetings provide regular opportunities for family issues to be raised and monitored with Ministers and the Chief of Defence People.</p><p>I recognise that there is more we can do to support families, which is why I am determined to drive forward projects such as the New Employment Model which aims to produce a modernised offer that reduces the impact of Service life on individuals and their families.</p>
