Future Accommodation Model

What you need to know about the Future Accommodation Model?

The Ministry of Defence is looking at how it can improve the accommodation offer for service personnel, to make it fairer, and more flexible, whilst keeping it affordable for the MOD.

In October 2017, the MOD decided to pilot a new way of providing living accommodation to personnel and their families. In particular, the pilot will test:

  • personnel being supported to rent a home in the private market, alongside existing options of SLA and SFA.
  • a widened entitlement beyond those who are married or in civil partnerships, because not all families follow the traditional model.

Who’s affected

The Future Accommodation Model (FAM) will apply to personnel with families and those without, whether they are single, in a relationship or married. It will apply to all regular service personnel and eligible reserves.

GOV.UK has a section that is continually updated, entitled What you need to know about FAM.
