A study on retention in the Armed Forces, to which AFF contributed, has recommended that investment on personnel and their families should take priority over new equipment.
Mark Francois MP was commissioned by the Prime Minister in 2018 to undertake the study after his 2017 report on recruitment, ‘Filling the Ranks’.
The objective of the second study was: ‘To understand how to create an environment that ensures the best retention of Service personnel for as long as Defence needs them.’
The report team used 200 submissions from families and personnel, as well as the three Families Federations, as part of its research. Read the full report, ‘Stick or Twist?’, here
