The Naval Families Federation exists to speak up for and champion Naval Service families. We represent their views and experiences 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 offer direct support to families with individual policy issues and advocate on their behalf. We also support appropriate and relevant research.
