ARMY FAMILIES FEDERATION (AFF) - FEEDBACK FROM NICOSIA STATION BRITCON COMMUNITY

Dear BRITCON Families,

I am keen to send a note to the Cyprus AFF with our collective thoughts on significant issues which concern us as a community.  This is an opportunity for us to raise our voice and attempt to influence policy makers at Army HQ and the MOD to ensure Army families are properly acknowledged and supported - particularly where families are overseas and transitioning to and from overseas stations.

To that end I am asking you to submit your simple bullet point concerns by return e mail either to me, to Suzie Stanier or to Brittany Mumford at the HIVE.    

You many have an issue that fall under the following broad areas:

  • Medical Provision/HEALIX
  • Employment Opportunities
  • Education/Childcare
  • Housing

Or you may have something outside of these categories; whatever it is please feel free to communicate.  Suzie and I will then sift what we get by way of response and then put together a 1-2 page draft letter for AFF to include in a Cyprus-wide submission to Army HQ.

We would be grateful for your thoughts by 18 Dec.

We will also be inviting the Episkop i AFF Rep (Carolyn) to come back in the New Year for a HIVE Coffee session and discussion/update on the main topics of interest, including an update on the Future Accommodation Model.  

Many thanks – with best wishes

Ed
