This study looks at the experiences of reservists, their families, their civilian employers and work colleagues to understand how part-time military service affects families and relationships.
• What do we understand of the different roles that reservists have within the military, within their family and within their civilian careers?
• How do reservists and their families cope with the changing roles between military life, civilian work and family life?
• What are the experiences of employers when reservists need to leave their civilian job for military service and how do reservists handle these transitions?
• What do reservists, their families and their employers think about what will make integration into the ‘whole force’ successful?
