The Army Families Federation has launched its annual Big Survey, which this year focuses on the future contract for military housing allocation and maintenance…

Families have been vocal about the failings and issues with the current contract – now AFF is asking for suggestions and ideas on what the new contract should include to help make their lives easier. With the contract (currently held by Amey) due for renewal soon, the charity says that now more than ever, families have a real chance to shape future policy.

AFF Chief Executive Sara Baade said: “Families tell us the many issues they face with their military housing – we want them to know that their voice is key in ensuring the changes they want to see actually happen, whether that be better appointment times, more first-time repair success, or more time to check their new quarter at move-in.”

The charity assures those not currently living in military housing, and those currently posted overseas, that their views are just as vital, given that the next contract is likely to be in place for at least the next seven years.

Known for their 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.

As a thank you for taking part, the military charity is also offering families the chance to win one of three Amazon vouchers for taking part (main prize £100).

Families are strongly encouraged to have their say before the survey closes on 30th November. Take part here.
