This information sheet has been produced to compliment the service and support provided by The Forces Additional Needs and Disability Forum (FANDF).
The RAF HIVE are reviewing the contents of the RAF HIVE Deployment Information Packs during this year. We would like as much input from yourselves as possible to make sure that these new packs contain all the relevant and important information that you require.
Deployment is when a serving person (your spouse, partner, son, daughter, father, mother, brother, sister etc.) is required to go to a specified operational location away from their family, the timescales vary but this could be six months or longer. Whether this is your first ‘Deployment Separation’ or you have been through them before, they can still be extremely difficult for both the serving person and their family.
