AFF’s latest survey wants to find out the challenges you face accessing childcare and what extra help – if any – you’d like.

The MOD is currently considering how service families can be better supported with their childcare – whether for under-fives, before and after-school care for primary-aged children or holiday clubs for older children.

AFF is encouraging you to have your say about the unique childcare issues you face. Do you have difficulty finding a nursery place due to frequent postings? How do you cope if you’re posted far away from your family?

Sara Baade, AFF’s chief executive, said: “Access to high-quality and affordable childcare can be an issue for many families, but army families can face unique challenges due to service life. Our survey will gather evidence on these issues so that we can highlight how you can be better supported.”

AFF is committed to ensuring your feedback is heard – and acted upon – by decision makers at all levels and this latest survey is no exception. You have until 21 February to have your say. Visit to take part!
