This winter, we will be focusing on some of the unique issues faced by some of our Army families.
We want to hear from all types of families to better understand the broad range of challenges today’s Army families face.
We would like to gather evidence and will be focusing in particular on carers in Army families (whether you are a parent carer, young carer or caring for extended family), those with children Not in Employment Education or Training (NEETs) and blended families.
Keep an eye out on our social media channels for the chance to share your views.
Working on your behalf
Throughout 2020, we have continued to work hard on your behalf to use your evidence to raise these issues to key decision makers in the Army, MOD and Government. From national policy changes to local impact, all have played their part in ensuring positive outcomes for our families during the year.
We have seen some fantastic results, including a change in guidance so that separated partners have easier access to social housing, ensuring families’ concerns were fed into considerations about guidance on allowances overseas and connecting with nearly 300 families in Wales through face-to-face and virtual events.
Get in touch with AFF
If family issues are on your agenda, then now is the time to speak to us, either via social media or by contacting our specialists. We welcome your comments, involvement and suggestions.
