A number of Deployment Support Resources are available to families from the HIVE.
Talking Tins, funded by RAF Charitable Trust, allow families of deployed personnel to record a short audio message which can then be sent out of area to the deployed Service person. They are then able to listen to the message, record a greeting over it and send it back to the UK. Other resources available to help youngsters cope during the time the family member is away include Deployment Journals, Staying Positive Charts and Hello from Home Booklets. To obtain the resources visit the HIVE officer or contact Sophie West on 01780 417541 or email
