The RAF Family – experiences from around the world
The online survey is now live for our research into experiences of RAF Families living overseas – please go to the survey launch page.
We need your views: This questionnaire is an important part of our research in this area, and the information given will help us to offer appropriate support to RAF families living outside of the UK in the future. We therefore want as many families as possible to get involved.
Our life in the RAF – views from RAF personnel and families
We need your help as RAF personnel, together with your partners by completing this five-minute online survey. All aimed at influencing future policy changes on your life in the RAF.
Our short survey has been completed already by some of you at Station Families Days and if that was you – thank you for your time in sharing your comments.
The aim of this survey is to gather anonymous information about some of the issues that you as RAF personnel and your families frequently report through the Armed Forces Continuous Attitude Survey (AFCAS) or Families Continuous Attitude Survey (FAMCAS) that have received negative or poor responses. Responses from individuals will not be identified and the survey has a routing plan based on responses that should take no longer than five minutes, unless more detail to specific questions is offered.
Without you, we have no voice…
We are funded by the RAF but sit outside the Chain of Command as an independent organisation. We provide a voice for the issues and concerns you have about life in the RAF, and we have direct access to senior RAF and MOD staffs as well as DIO and Government Ministers. We will always maintain your anonymity and respect your privacy. Together with your feedback, we can help influence positive change. To keep ahead of what surveys are live and when, you can sign up to our weekly eBulletin.
We collect evidence in all sorts of ways
Workshops Our Evidence Team can come to you on your Station and run really short, snappy interactive workshops using voting pads. Allow an hour per workshop and learn more about how the Families Federation can help you too. Online, in your own time We have various short surveys available online where you simply click in and whiz down through the survey. Takes 5 minutes! We can’t see who the results are from either; only the Station you are from so we can address potential key issues in regional locations. Have an idea for a survey? Contact the RAF FF team to share any ideas on what areas you think we should investigate more and we’ll investigate further.
