About Keeping Families in Mind 

Keeping Families in Mind (KFIM) is funded by the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust and has been designed to provide support to families who are struggling with the demands of military life, particularly following the deployment of a family member, and the demands of adapting to civilian life.

We know that it can be difficult to cope with the uncertainty of having family members away from home for lengthy periods and equally hard adapting when they return. If you are having difficulty coping with the extraordinary demands of living in this environment, we can help and our therapists are on hand to provide emotional support and practical advice to help you cope more effectively.

We know that family life carries on regardless and that this can bring its own stresses and challenges.

Our service is for families of serving personnel and veterans. Parents, partners, siblings, grandparents, children and other family members over the age of 18 who live in South Yorkshire. We provide free counselling with a qualified therapist in our office, in a community venue or online. We also run peer support groups in Sheffield, Barnsley, Rotherham and Doncaster, where people are able to meet other military families and join in activities.

 “At the beginning of therapy I wanted a fairy godmother to wave a magic wand and make my life better, happier and back to how it used to be when I was about 17”

From my sessions I have gained more than I could have ever hoped for, I haven’t got that 17 year old me back, let’s face it I’m a mum, I’m a wife, I’m a homeowner, I work, I have far more responsibility than I had then, what I have instead is new improved me.”
