Responses and feedback

We welcome feedback and ideas from our followers and will try to add value to conversations where we can.

We always try to read messages directed to us and ensure that any emerging themes or helpful suggestions are passed to the relevant people in MOD. However, due to resource constraints we will not always be able to reply individually to messages we receive.

In general, we prefer not to send or receive private or direct messages to keep conversations open and public. We are bound by the Civil Service Code, and cannot engage on issues of party politics.

Followers

If you follow us on social media we will not automatically follow you back. This avoids us having to spend time dealing with spam accounts, and helps keep discussions open by limiting the use of private or direct messages.

We will follow and read social media postings from organisations and individuals where appropriate and relevant to Commander JFC. We reserve the right to ignore, block or unfollow social media accounts we believe are malicious or spam.

Our following or engagement with a social media account does not imply official JFC endorsement of any kind for that account or the material it contains.
