Housing and Accommodation month

RAF Accomodation

This month and next we are focusing our attention to topics related to housing and accommodation. Over the course of September and October we will share information to help answer the most common housing questions, tips and advice that might be useful.

Currently, 52% of the issues raised with the RAF Families Federation are related to housing and accommodation. In-house we have two resident housing experts to help you step through resolving your accommodation issues:

Stan Braithwaite, Evidence Assistant

Stan was in the RAF for 38 years and experienced accommodation challenges first hand. “In a 9 year period I moved between five stations, eight married quarters and the associated family disruption before moving into private housing.”

Gregory Timlin, Evidence Assistant

Gregory joined us in 2019. “I am married to a serving RAF Officer and so have personal experience of a lot of the issues that are commonly raised to the Families Federation and I have made use of their support myself.”
