Hi Everyone,

We hope you are staying well.

MKC H members have come together with ideas to help those of you with a family member away, or working very long hours so they hardly see you at all.

Thanks to everyone who sent in their thinking and thanks to Pete for uploading.

We are pleased to announce that the RFEA are now offering a Families Programme where we can support the wider services community. We recognise the need to support spouses and partners of serving Armed Forces and ex-service personnel.

Frequent moves, relatively isolated locations, employer reluctance and the complexities of building a normal career often mean that many military spouses and partners can feel like getting back into work is a tough task. The help includes individual employment support to enable career development and to assist clients in achieving sustainable employment.

The programme is open to spouses & partners of those still serving and ex-service personnel, subject to eligibility checks.

To register for support please complete the form on the RFEA website.
