The Joint Casualty and Compassionate Centre (JCCC) has launched a new mobile app and briefing films to help service personnel and their families access their services.

When families experience incidents at home while loved ones are serving overseas it is very important that everyone is aware of the process in place that can facilitate their immediate return home.

This short Families Brief is to explain the role the JCCC undertakes 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year to help families when incidents occur involving service personnel or someone at home.

BFPO - Enduring Free Mail Service Extended from 1 Sept 2015

In response to feedback received from personnel, the MOD has taken the step to extend its Enduring Families Free Mail Service (EFFMS) from 1 September 2015.

It will allow a further 1,200 personnel serving on joint operations on land, sea, and air to benefit from the opportunity to receive letters and parcels from their family and friends for free.

The EFFMS is delivered by the British Forces Post Office (BFPO) in conjunction with Royal Mail, and allows family and friends to send letters and items roughly the size of a shoe box and weighing up to 2kg from one of the 11,500 post offices throughout the UK to Defence personnel around the world.
