Objectives

The Naval Families Federation exists to speak up for Royal Navy and Royal Marines families.  

Our vision is for all Naval Service Families to:

  • Be able to have their views heard by those in positions of power
  • Feel valued and to be treated with fairness and respect
  • Be able to thrive in their communities of choice.

We recognise that Naval Service families are resourceful and resilient. We seek to support and represent them when resilience alone is not enough, to hold stakeholders and service providers to account where disadvantage exists, and to advocate on behalf of families who have been treated unfairly.

We empower family members to thrive and enjoy a good quality of life, and to make sound choices for their well-being.

We ensure that the unique challenges they face are considered in the tri-Service arena and when policies are reviewed. 

Activities

We represent the views and experiences of Naval Service families to those who make the policies and decisions that affect them. We meet regularly with the Royal Navy’s Chain of Command, Government Ministers, Other Government Departments and other key stakeholders.  We also support appropriate and relevant research.  

We provide easy access to sources of accurate, authoritative and up-to-date information and guidance, and by educating stakeholders and service providers about how best to ensure fair treatment for families.

We advocate on behalf of families who have been unable to resolve issues through the normal channels.
