In March 2020 we invited the FAM team to join us in a Facebook Live session to answer your questions on all things FAM related. We would like to thank all of you who participated by asking questions and raising your concerns. Some of those questions were taken away by the FAM team to explore further in order to provide a more detailed response. We are pleased to let you know that we have now received those responses and they can be viewed here.
If you have any further questions or comments as a result of any of the FAQ responses, or about FAM in general, please contact our Housing Specialist, Cat Calder at email@example.com and they will be forwarded to the FAM team for an answer.Back to top
