The Army Families Federation (AFF) is pleased to announce a serious of additional needs support groups aimed at increasing Army families’ wellbeing and confidence through increased support…

Thanks to funding from ABF, The Soldiers’ Charity, these new groups will not only support and empower families who have children with additional needs and/or disability, but will also allow AFF to develop their understanding of what support is needed, and what gaps in provision families are experiencing.

AFF Health & Additional Needs Specialist Karen Ross explains: “We want to encourage families to come and meet others facing similar challenges to their own.

“We relish the opportunity to speak to families face-to-face in order to learn as much about the current issues as we can. What can we offer? A safe environment for families to come and share their ideas and experiences and hear about the latest information relevant to them.”

AFF plans to use the information it gathers from families at these events to inform the MOD, service providers and other relevant charities of how services can be improved.

Events will be held in Windsor, Aldergrove, Catterick and Colchester. For a full list of dates, visit the AFF website at
