Royal Air Force Families Federation
Why YOU should contact the Federation
The RAF Families Federation is funded by the RAF but sits outside the Chain of Command as an independent organisation. We represent all RAF personnel, be you Regular, Reserve, single, married or in a partnership, together with your families. We provide a voice for the issues and concerns you have about life in the RAF. We also have direct access to senior RAF and MoD staffs as well as Government Ministers.
To do all this, we need to hear from you on issues such as quality of life, accommodation, health, education, pay and allowances. Everyone's views and concerns are important to us.
Key things to remember:
We work with the RAF/MOD and not against them
We don't undermine the chain of command; we work with them but we dig them in the ribs on your behalf when necessary
We will signpost you to the 'best' experts to help you if required
We always maintain your anonymity and respect your privacy
We always maintain a fair and balanced approach.
Telephone lines are open Monday to Friday between 10 am and 3 pm. Voicemails and emails are responded to as a priority, during the next working day.
For when you need it most - The Armed Forces Covenant
The Armed Forces Covenant (AFC) is there to make sure you, as military personnel or your families are not disadvantaged as a result of military service. Veterans are also supported by the Covenant and it will be there to support you when your serving days end, for whatever reason.
If you experience any of the issues below, or similar - please contact us:
Struggle with access to financial services - perhaps a mobile phone contract, bank loan or mortgage - because of your military service
Fair access to NHS services after being posted to the other side of the country
Timely access to a school place for your son/daughter
Access to civilian employment for spouses and partners.
The Armed Forces Covenant includes the Community and Corporate Covenants. Our team can help to ensure the Covenant works for you in times of need.
