FUTURE ACCOMMODATION MODEL - SURVEY


Future Accommodation Model – Survey for Service Personnel and Spouses
The Ministry of Defence is thinking about how it provides Service Personnel with accommodation in the future. This follows the SDSR commitment to make a new accommodation offer to help more personnel live in private accommodation and meet their aspirations for home ownership. The proposals are still in development. Future Accommodation Model (FAM) is still at an early stage. No decisions have been finalised, and the details are likely to change.

It is important that Service families, wherever they are in the world, have a chance to feedback their views on how they would like accommodation to be provided. Families are requested to complete the AFF survey to provide their views and feedback and to help influence the decisions being made.
Service Families Federations are hosting the Big Survey 2016 – Future of Housing. AFF has three Fitbit Flex to giveaway for those taking the survey (those wanting to be entered for a chance to win one will need to include their details at the end of the survey).
For more information on the Future Accommodation Model, visit the AFF website -http://www.aff.org.uk/linkedfiles/aff/latest_news_information/20160623-futureaccommodationmodelbriefingforfamfeds.pdf
