Wanted: Army families’ views on housing

In its latest survey, the Army Families Federation (AFF) wants to find out what families think of the new way of providing Army housing which is currently being piloted – the Future Accommodation Model (FAM).

Building for the future

The MOD is currently considering what the future of Army housing will look like, including the widening of subsidised housing for families to include renting privately or buying their own home.

AFF is encouraging families to have their say on what they think about the model and whether it has affected their choice of housing on the pilot site in Aldershot.

AFF also wants to find out what families outside of Aldershot think of the model: Do families understand what FAM might mean for them?  Will a needs-based rather than rank-based model work best?

AFF Housing Specialist Cat Calder said: “FAM is a key issue that Army families ask AFF about. Our survey will gather evidence to allow AFF to highlight Army families’ views to key decision makers.”

Push for families’ feedback

Known for its work in pushing for positive changes that affect Army families’ lives, AFF is committed to ensuring families’ feedback is heard by decision makers at all levels – and acted upon. And this latest survey will be no exception.

  • Families, wherever they currently live, are strongly encouraged to have their say before the survey closes on 19 October. They can take part at https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/websitebs2020 and have the chance to win one of three £100 John Lewis vouchers.
