RAF Deployment Toolkit - For RAF personnel to be properly effective in the demanding environment of world-wide operational deployments, it is essential that their well being and that of their families is properly cared for. The RAF has a well-founded support organisation that provides the necessary community support services for personnel both in the UK and overseas. However, for that support to be effective individuals must firstly be aware of it, and secondly, call upon it for help whenever the need arises. It is therefore important that you understand the depth and breadth of the community support that is available to you and how that support can be accessed whenever your peace of mind, or that of your family, is affected. This toolkit has been produced to take into account the specific needs of the RAF community, it is your essential survival guide to the current range of community support services that are available to you and to your family. This guide should not be seen an exhaustive guide but is aimed at providing help, support and guidance for those left behind as service personnel deploy. We have aimed to provide as much information about the support mechanisms that are available so you can select which ones you wish to use. Also, there is some valuable information about allowances, the effects of deployment on children, legal issues and the return and reunion - RAF Internal Intranet Link.
