The Ministry of Defence (MOD) and the UK Armed Forces are committed to taking action to improve culture and eradicate unacceptable behaviour. This involves a broad range of ongoing interventions, from developing training, carrying out climate assessments, implementing a suite of policies including the 'Zero tolerance to unacceptable sexual behaviour: A victim/survivor focussed approach', and working to better understand why these behaviours occur. We are transforming our approach to Service Complaints and the Service Justice System, improving trust and confidence in those systems so that when unacceptable behaviours arise, they are reported and dealt with seriously and expeditiously.
