Roadmap for sustainability in MoD support infrastructure

In June 2019, the UK became the first major economy to bring into law targets to end its contribution to global warming by 2050. In line with this commitment, within the Ministry of Defence’s (MoD) logistic support element, Defence Equipment & Support (DE&S), there is a drive to achieve the necessary net zero carbon emissions by 2050 (NZ50), and in this endeavour the MoD is likely to be the pathfinder for the wider UK Government.

Checking in on our Mental Health

Mental health is important. It is something that we all have, in the same way we all have a state of physical health. When our mental health is in a good state, we can make the most of our potential, tackle what life throws at us and play a full part in our circle of family, friends and communities. But if our mental health is not in a good state, we may lose motivation, feel a mixture of emotions and struggle to participate. It can be hard to understand and accept how we are feeling, and we may feel uneasy opening up to others.

Homeschooling support

Our COVID-19 Impact Report highlighted the ways in which the pandemic is affecting our members and explored how we can support our membership further. Nearly 30% of members who took part in the survey are currently homeschooling their children in addition to their job, with over half of these indicating that they do not have enough time to homeschool effectively and a quarter saying that they do not have sufficient educational resources.
