T e Future Accommodation Model (FAM)


FAM is currently designing how the MOD will provide personnel and their families with accommodation over the next 50+ years. It’s worth remembering that, if it goes ahead, it will take several years to introduce in full; it’s not going to happen overnight. Recent work on FAMhas been focused on developing athree-


cent work on FAM has been focused on developing a three-


year pilot scheme, which is planned to launch from December 2018 at afew selected sites that have yet to be finalised. The pilot will test:


•Widened accommodation eligibility –personnel on the pilot regardless of rank or marital status, will be eligible for all accommodation options


•Offering achoice of accommodation to personnel (SFA, SLA, renting, and continued support to buy ahome), based on need –not rank and marital status, as it is today


•Providing anew ‘accommodation payment’ for those on the pilot


Those on the pilot will be able to state their preference for the accommodation they want to live in (subject to availability).


Finally –toreassure families -the pilot won’t force personnel and their families out of their SFAifthey are already living


in it and wish to stay, nor will it sell off any SFA. Instead, the pilot will test key parts of the new policy and the way it is delivered so that MOD can make any necessary changes, before it goes live across the UK. The FAM Update #2 is available via the link below

Single Living in Accommodation (SLA). The RAF is relatively well off in terms of its SLA but many of you will know that there are issues with maintenance and with the number of living-in personnel still being allocated grade 3 and 4accommodation, often in very poor condition and with poor facilities. We continue to highlight this as aserious issue and have raised it with the House of Commons Defence Committee and the Armed Forces Covenant Ministerial Board, as well as with the MOD. However,ifweare to keep the pressure on to get something done, we need to capture your concerns, views and evidence, so please go to our website and get in touch. …..and please be on the lookout for our online Surveys.
