TRANSITION SURVEY



The Naval, Army and RAF Families Federations have today launched their joint Transition Survey.

The federations are inviting military families to take part in sharing their views and experiences to help make a difference to Forces families.

Focus on Transition
The survey focusses on transition out of the Armed Forces and will target those families who have either left the Forces in the last two years, or are due to leave before September 2019.

It will cover all aspects of the transition process including reasons for leaving, and the effect this has on the family of the serving person. They’ll also be asking families to tell them what they find to be the most challenging aspect of transition.


Families’ feedback is vital
AFF Chief Executive Sara Baade said, “Our tri-Service Transition Survey, the biggest and most in-depth survey of the year, is a really important way for families to interact with us and give us a current reflection of the issues facing our unique community.

As well as asking for families’ experiences, we’ll be asking them to share their ideas about how the transition process can be improved. Their opinions are vital in informing our future work and success.”

Get involved

For those who are leaving: click here to take the survey.

For those that have left: click here to take the survey.

All those who take part will be entered into a free prize draw to win one of three HP tablets courtesy of DXC technology.

STRESS CONTROL COURSES


Stress Control is a free six week, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) based self-help course offered by NHS Lothian. It consists of six 1 ½ hour lecture format presentations. It is aimed primarily at people experiencing difficulties in managing their stress (also referred to as anxiety or mixed anxiety and depression). The course aims to provide attendees with the practical skills they need to help manage their own stress.

It is okay to bring a friend or anyone else you would like to support you to attend.

Stress Control is a lecture format and therefore you will never be asked to talk in front of the class or singled out.
