Abstract

Concerns have been raised about the level of support available to those families who provide unpaid care for wounded, injured or sick (WIS) personnel in the UK. In this opinion piece, support services for families of WIS personnel in the UK and their associated evaluations are reviewed. Support services are found to be provided by government-led initiatives, third sector organisations and the Service Family Federations. A minority of interventions for families of WIS personnel in the UK have been evaluated and a culture of service evaluation is encouraged within the field.
