Keeping in Touch

Staying in touch can with what is happening RAF-wise can sometimes be difficult. Here is a list of links to those organisations you might find of use.

RAF FF Website

Keep an eye on our website and news stories for up-to-date news and developments, (the website is updated daily). If you'd like a summary of the key stories sent direct to your inbox, you might like to consider signing up to our eBULLETIN. We send out an eBulletin approximately once a week.

Social Media

The Federation also communicates through social media - Facebook page or Twitter.

Please think before you share anything online and please read the Families section on what not to do whilst on social media etc on GOV.UK

If you are a parent of someone in the RAF or actually thinking of joining yourself, we also have a specific Facebook Group and that's great for all our members on there supporting each other and sharing some great experiences. We monitor that group and find that mostly the parents and other Serving personnel answer each other's questions, without the need for us to get involved. Everyone is vetted too when you request to join as your safety is of paramount importance to us.
