The Army Families Federation

The Army Families Federation (AFF) is the independent voice of Army families. We passionately represent our unique community: Regular or Reserve, wherever they are based, whatever the make-up of their family.

What does AFF do?

Throughout the UK and overseas, AFF provides essential links between families, the Army, government and other decision makers. We work hard on behalf of families to achieve positive changes, and offer advice and guidance on all aspects of Army life.

We represent families on a number of relevant boards, groups and other meetings to help influence future policy making and ensure decision makers consider families’ needs.

How can we help?

Our local co-ordinators are often the first point of contact for families struggling with an issue. See them at local events, hear them on local radio and look out for them on social media and local notice boards.

The AFF specialists deal with issues that are more complex and build crucial links with key contacts,to ensure families’ needs are understood and met.

We aim to represent families on as many relevant boards, groups and other meetings as we can so decision makers can better understand families’ views. We also speak with relevant government ministers, and engage with a wide variety of departments within the MOD, to help influence future policy making and ensure families’ needs are considered.

AFF works hard to not only acknowledge and promote the success of the Armed Forces Covenant, but also to highlight and address the areas where improvement is needed.

How can we help?

AFF has team members based around the world. Our local co-ordinators provide a vital presence in the community and are often the first point of contact for families struggling with an issue. Catch them at local events such as coffee mornings and roadshows, listen out for them on local radio and even look out for them on social media and local notice boards.

Our co-ordinators work closely with the AFF specialists on more complex issues, and build crucial links with local chain of command, DIO and other agencies, to ensure families’ needs are understood and met.
