AFF Survey - Work/life balance: is your family working to live, or living to work?

Do you think your soldier has a good work/life balance? How does that affect your Army family?

In our latest survey, we want to discover more about the barriers that families face when trying to balance their family life with their soldier's workload, and what they feel could be done to improve things.

Our short survey is live from 4-31 May and is designed to help us gather evidence of families’ biggest challenges including:

  • Difficulties with taking annual leave
  • Too many compulsory social functions
  • Too much time away from the family
  • Not being able to switch off from work when at home
  • Increased or unmanageable workload

Families’ feedback will be used to inform AFF’s work and help us build a case for approaching decision makers to push for positive changes.

Take our survey and make sure your voice is counted.
