Future Accommodation Model (FAM) Pilot Success Story

The way people live and work is changing and the Future Accommodation Model (FAM) is reflecting this by improving the accommodation offer for a modern Defence. FAM gives more choice to support the needs of Service personnel over where, how and with whom they live.

FAM pilot success story…
FAM have been speaking to Service personnel on the pilot about how they’ve benefited from FAM.

RAF Corporal, Steven and his wife Keely share their story about how, with the help of their FAM Cell, they were approved for a larger Service Family Accommodation (SFA) property that would have previously been unobtainable if based off rank. Their new SFA affords the family with the space they need to live and grow.
