30th Anniversary Report and January Committee Meeting

To mark the 30th anniversary of the creation of the FANDF, the committee conducted a survey of issues faced by Serving Forces families with additional needs and disability. On 23rd January the FANDF committee held a launch event to celebrate the release of their survey report, ‘Families Fighting On…’.

This is the largest known survey into MOD families with additional needs or disabilities in the UK Armed Forces, and the first time this demographic has shared these insights and their experiences in an official capacity with the Ministry of Defence.  It provides a platform the families to explain in their own words their lived experiences and the issues they face on a daily basis.

2020 FANDF Conference

** Updated Information **

The decision has been made to postpone the upcoming FANDF biennial conference on 29th June 2020. This is related to the current situation with Covid19, the likely escalation of public health concerns and the general instruction to avoid travel and large group meetings. The FANDF committee ​hope to run the conference ​in June 2021, when we ​expect the situation ​will have improved.
