Currently, 96% of Service Family Accommodation (SFA) meets or exceeds the Government’s Decent Homes Standard. Only these properties should be allocated to families.

This Government continues to invest significant sums to improve the quality of UK SFA. The Defence Infrastructure Organisation received an investment of £400M over this Financial Year and next, as part of the Defence Command Paper Refresh 2023. This is being spent on improving the preparation of homes; treating and preventing damp and mould and improving thermal efficiency; and refurbishing empty homes in high demand areas.
