The Naval Families Federation exists to give all currently serving Royal Navy and Royal Marines personnel and their families the opportunity to have their views heard by those in positions of power. We work to remove disadvantage that may result from Service life. Our vision is for the serving Naval Service community to feel valued, to be treated with fairness and respect, and to be able to thrive. We recognise the significant diversity of people’s personal circumstances, family structures and communities, and aim to provide appropriately tailored support.
– We find out about the ‘lived experience’ of Naval Service families, and representing their views and concerns at Ministerial level, and to the Naval Service, government departments, civilian service providers and other stakeholders, in order to inform policy-making and change. We can challenge policy on your behalf.
– Providing information and de-mystifying the system through our website, social media channels, Homeport magazine, and direct engagement with families via our enquiries desk or face-to-face.
– Providing advocacy support when appropriate, and offering signposting and guidance to help serving people and their families to find the best route to resolve an issue.
