AFF has received funding for a new project – Positive Futures for Military Partners – working with colleagues in the RAF and Naval Families Federations. The project aims to make sure that Service spouses and partners are provided with clear and easy access to effective partner employment support.
The project will review the range of support currently available to partners, and explore the next stage for Forces Families Jobs.
AFF Employment & Training Specialist Lucy Ritchie said: “Ensuring that military spouses and partners are able to maintain their employment is a key issue for the Families Federations and we work closely together on Forces Families Jobs and in raising the issues families face.
“To ensure that spouses and partners have effective employment support, we want to review the current provision to ensure that it’s providing the clear and easily accessible support they need and look at recommendations to make future support as effective as possible.”
The funding comes from the Supporting Partners: Innovation programme, part of the MOD Armed Forces Families Fund.
The fund is administered by the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust.
