The RAF Association

The Royal Air Forces Association (the Association), is a membership organisation and registered charity that provides welfare support to the RAF family.

The RAF family includes all serving and ex-serving personnel and their dependants. The Association exists in the recognition that RAF personnel and their immediate families dedicate their lives to their country, and to ensure that such a sacrifice does not result in suffering, poverty or loneliness.

Applications of the Agreement

Our volunteers work with us in a variety of ways to help us achieve our aims and the following agreement applies to all individuals volunteering for the Association in a welfare, event, fundraising or general role, whether directly for the Association or for an Association Branch. For the purposes of the following document, both Branch and all other Association volunteers will be referred to as ‘volunteers’.

The Association believes that its volunteers should be treated respectfully, inclusively and fairly wherever possible and asks its volunteers to behave in the same way towards others. We aim to be flexible, so please let us know if there is anything we could change to make your volunteering experience more enjoyable and we will do our best to accommodate it.
