The Additional Needs and Disability Guide: A Guide for Service Families

This guide is compiled by The FANDF Committee and the SSAFA Additional Needs and Disability Advisor. The Guide intends to offer families with challenging issues a step towards finding some answers to these questions. It is by no means comprehensive but it intended to signpost to some of the services and resources available, which will hopefully help you find the appropriate support and make life easier.

Joint Service Publication: JSP 820

Army - 'AGAI 108' has recently been absorbed into 'AGAI 81, Part 8 - supportability and additional needs'. If you have a family member with an additional need it is important to inform the Army Personnel Centre (APC) of this so your family can be supported. This can be done by completing Annex L - Career Management Notification Proforma.  AGAI 81 can be accessed via MODNet.
