Being in Touch
Staying in touch can with what is happening RAF-wise can sometimes be difficult. To help make things a little easier, we have in this section put together a list of links to those organisations you might find of use.
Keep an eye on the RAF Families Federation website and news listing for up-to-date news and developments, (the website is updated daily) The site carries stories of interest to anyone in the RAF family or associated with it.
The Federation also communicates via social media and our own forums. So why not keep in touch that way if it is easier.
or click below for access to our forums:
The RAF official website offers a plethora of information on all thing RAF, including aircraft, stations, history etc
RAF Airspace is a a controlled access community website for serving RAF personnel, senior retired officers, reservists and their families.
Thesite offers information on all three services, it also now acts as an umbrella site for many organisations who, until recently, had their own sites, for example RAFCOM and Defence Estates.
It would be remiss of us if we did not draw your attention to the RAF Community Support pages on the RAF website which is available to all via the Internet. The site has over 1,000 pages of useful information and links that cover family-related issues. Where possible, we have linked our site to the relevant RAF Community Support items but, if you can’t find what you are looking for here, their pages may well have the answer.
