Summary

As anticipated, recreational facilities continue to run at an operational loss and present the most immediate challenge to the Board.

Air Force members continue to be the majority of users at recreational facilities however, as with the other Services, the challenge lies within the numbers (or lack thereof) of eligible persons using the facilities. The Board continues its assessment of the business model in terms of relevance as detailed in its Corporate Plan and how a more efficient and wider reaching service may be offered to members.

The revised investment construct, fully implemented during FY 17/18, has realised positive results in that holiday operations were fully subsidised and an overall operational surplus was achieved.
