All day: The Forces Additional Needs and Disability Forum (FANDF) Conference for Forces families
October 5, 2021 All day
The Forces Additional Needs and Disability Forum (FANDF) biennial conference will be held on Tuesday 5 October 2021 at the Ministry of Defence (MOD) (Covid-19 restrictions permitting).
FANDF is a tri-service group for families who have a child or adult dependent with an additional need and/or disability, providing a network for Service families. The conference is an opportunity for families to meet and gather useful information from relevant organisations. The conference is also an opportunity for Forces families to directly raise the issues and concerns they have to policy makers and professionals relating to disability and additional needs.
The conference will include an update on the recommendations within the FANDF ‘Families Fighting On’ report, as well as updates and briefings from the MOD, NHS England & NHS Improvement and Education.
A variety of stallholders and professionals will be present at the lunch and networking session, allowing families the opportunity to gather useful information from relevant organisations and to speak with key stakeholders. During the day, there will also be an opportunity for families to ask questions at the Q&A sessions.
The FANDF is run by a committee of elected members whose vision is to ensure that all ‘Forces families with additional needs and disabilities receive the support they need.’
One of their most notable pieces of work to date is the publication of the ‘Families Fighting On’ report. This is the largest known survey on Forces families with additional needs and/or disabilities in the UK and provided a platform for families to give examples of their own lived experiences and the issues they face on a daily basis.
FANDF’s mission is:
