Families Continuous Attitude Survey (FAMCAS) 2016

Families Continuous Attitude Survey (FAMCAS) 2016.

On 8 Feb 2016 Army Headquarters distributed the FAMCAS to 12,565 personnel Army-wide for completion by their spouses/civil partners. If, as a serving personnel, you have received a survey by post or by email, please ensure that it is passed to your spouse/civil partner soon as possible and encourage them to complete it. All responses will be treated in the strictest confidence, will not be seen by the Army and are subsequently destroyed by the contractor who gathers the information.

So far, 23% of invited spouses/civil partners have expressed their views about being part of an Army family. Thank you to those personnel who have passed on the survey and the spouses/civil partners who have completed FAMCAS. 

However, more responses are required.  The evidence provided by this survey is made even more compelling if greater numbers reply.  This is an opportunity for spouses/civil partners to have their say.  

The opinions of spouses/civil partners are highly valued and help to influence government policy and your terms and conditions of Service.The survey closes on 3 May 16.  Please send your responses in as soon as possible.
