CarillionAmey Walk Away Scheme - Notice Required

As you might expect the Walkaway scheme* is particularly busy at this time of year due to the high volume of move outs arranged during the summer.
CarillionAmey are are experiencing a number of issues where occupants are leaving their request to use the schem until the last minute, including one individual who submitted their request at 8pm the night before move out, which the team had no chance of processing. He then went on to submit a complaint!
SFA residents planning on using the Walkaway Scheme are advised that they need to place their request a minimum of two days before the move-out date. In addition, they need occupants' email addresses so that they team can send the correct detail out to them - preferably a personal email address so they receive the certificate outside of work.

SSAFA Stepping Stone Homes

SSAFAs Stepping Stone Homes based in both the North East and the South of England provide short-term supported accommodation, help and advice to female service or ex-serving personnel, the female spouses or partners of serving or ex-serving personnel, and their dependent children.

Support is also provided to women without children or whose children may be living elsewhere temporarily, those seeking accommodation due to welfare needs, and Foreign & Commonwealth cases. The above list is not exhaustive. Each case will be considered individually.

Our homes provide a comfortable, secure and female-only place to stay for as long as it takes the resident to get back on their feet. From our clean and well-maintained communal spaces to private areas for each resident to make their own, we make our houses like home for however long the resident is with us.

The schemes are also registered with local authorities as refuges for those fleeing domestic abuse and, as such, their locations are not to be disclosed to the public. Referrals can be made via the email addresses below:

The 2017 Families Continuous Attitude Survey (FAMCAS)

The 2017 Families Continuous Attitude Survey (FAMCAS) provides the opportunity for Army spouses/civil partners to express their views about a range of issues that affect their life as a Service family. The evidence provided by these views is a vital source of information that assists the Army in developing future personnel policy.

To support this process, it is important that the collective views of spouses/civil partners of Officers and Soldiers alike are communicated to the wider Army.
