Service personnel's FAM success stories in 2021

Throughout this year, the Future Accommodation Model (FAM) team have been sharing the good news stories of personnel who have benefitted from the FAM pilot.

Since FAM launched in 2019 at HMNB Clyde, followed by Aldershot Garrison and RAF Wittering in 2020, the pilot has helped over 2,500 applicants experience the flexible accommodation approach that FAM offers.

To reflect some of the success stories, the team have pulled together a selection of clips from those personnel who have been helped by FAM. It shows the impact the pilot is having and the real difference it has made to personnel, partners, their families, and their lives.
