About us

Your RAF Families Federation – Your Voice

The RAF Families Federation provides an independent voice for all personnel (single, married or in a partnership) and all of your families. 

We work to improve quality of life around the world – at work or at home.  This could include resolving problems with access to education or healthcare for children and young people, sorting out problems with accommodation, benefits and visas, or helping military spouses find meaningful employment – all issues that arise from having a mobile lifestyle. 

The team can provide practical support and advice, as well as lobbying for change with politicians, the Chain of Command and policy makers in the British Government and across Scotland, Wales and NI. 

We work hard with a multitude of other organisations and agencies – from the NHS to the big banks – to ensure that you and your family are treated fairly and that you do not face disadvantage because of the unique nature of service life.

Keep in touch

We have our own quarterly magazine, ‘Envoy’, a weekly online eBulletin and various social media forums and groups that you can register with for free.
