RAF Families Federation
The RAF Families Federation provides an independent voice for all RAF personnel and their families, wherever they are in the world.
All RAF personnel and their families – Regular and Reserve, single or married – are provided with timely confidential and professional support, assistance regarding issues or concerns that they may have. This includes collecting accurate and quantifiable evidence in order for the Families Federation to provide a snapshot to Commanders and Government of current issues to help support the delivery of future policies.
The team works hard with a multitude of other organisations and agencies, from the NHS to the big banks, to ensure that personnel and their families are treated fairly. All part of the Armed Forces Covenant which is a promise from the nation ensuring that those who serve or who have served in the armed forces, and their families are treated fairly and not disadvantaged in their day-to-day lives.
