As a brand-new member of staff, I have arrived at AFF with a completely open mind but it has quickly become obvious to me that AFF is a hugely-respected organisation, brimming with dedicated and passionate staff who really make a difference to families.
It didn't take long to get to the heart of the matter; AFF co-ordinators are there to listen to families. They not only help to find solutions, they also collate anonymous statistics which are then presented to Army command. AFF is fiercely independent, but our job is to effect change, and we work with, rather than for or against, Army policy makers to get the best deal for families.
I have joined at a time of much uncertainty for families and - with enquiries to AFF on the rise - what is set to be a busy time for the organisation.
We love feedback and the more we get, the more we can help!
