Didnt the army experience some high profile bullying cases when they first started using single rooms back in he 80s?
ctfairway said:It was always the plan to replace the Rollalong SLA at Northwood when the PFI contract was finalised and the whole site was redeveloped. If Rollalong hadnt been built in 2001, the JR accommodation would still, 6 years down the line, be the same leaking rotting old messdecks that were in use before Rollalong was built. Instead for the past 6 years, JR's at Northwood have had smart, warm, dry single ensuite rooms.
catwalk said:This was highlighted at the Deepct Enquiry and as i believe the recommendations that all trainees should be sharing and not left alone to remove loneliness, risk of self harm and suicide.
catwalk said:the Captain stated that he is very concerned about the isolation the junior rates maybe suffering locked away playing play stations and not speaking to anyone until they turn to the next day.
