Joint Service Housing Advice Office (JSHAO) - Housing Briefs

JSHAO Housing Briefs

The MoD provides civilian housing information to members of the Armed Forces via the Joint Service Housing Advice Office (JSHAO). JSHAO is the MOD’s tri-service focal point providing Service personnel and their family members with pertinent information for those considering civilian accommodation at any time in their career, and for those during resettlement to assist with the transition to civilian life. The bulk of this information is via a 2-2½ hr presentation with 1-1 consults available.

An Independent Financial Mortgage Adviser who is a member of SIIAP (Services Insurance and Investment Advisory Panel) which is recognised by the MOD as supporting the Armed Forces (refer 2013DIN01-218), accompanies JSHAO at the briefings.

Each JSHAO briefing is notified on all HIVE blogs regardless of location to ensure maximum coverage to the Service community.


The Royal British Legion wants to take all surviving veterans of the Second World War on a free Remembrance tour to where they served during their time in the Armed Forces.
Tours will take place throughout 2018 and will give WW2 veterans the chance to meet up with fellow veterans and pay their respects at battlefield sites, cemeteries and memorials. The Treasury is enabling these free tours to be funded by Libor fines, and will enable the veterans to return with a family member and carer.
