Sometimes it can be difficult to find the help, support or advice you need. That’s why we’re here.
Our website has the answers to questions we’re
But if you need something else, our friendly team is ready to help, or to introduce you to someone else who can.
We’re a totally confidential service, we understand the challenges of Navy life but aren’t a formal part of the Naval Service.
Whether you need help with schools, where you live or work, your finances, your future, a posting overseas, relationships or your health, our concern is always for you, our Naval Service family.
Every day we work with and support serving sailors, marines and their families. As a result, we genuinely understand the unique demands and challenges of Naval Service life.
By hearing about the issues you face we can learn from them. By asking questions personally and through surveys, we can evidence them.
We then take these lessons and work to make important changes to benefit you, the Royal Navy and Royal Marines families of today and those of tomorrow.
Your experiences can help others – we want you to have your say.
Our Federation is a charity, totally confidential and independent of the Royal Navy and Royal Marines.
We listen to and learn from our Royal Navy and Royal Marines families. Then take that information to work as a force for change.
With access to policymakers at the highest levels – Government, politicians, the chain of command and a host of other organisations, we work as a partnership to deliver change.

The Naval Families Federation was set up at the request of the Government in order to allow the families of the Naval Service to have their voices heard.
We are a registered charity in England and Wales (1177107), funded through a grant-in-aid, which allows us to operate independently of the Government and the Chain of Command. We have also received funding from Greenwich Hospital and from LIBOR funds for specific projects.
