Helen Fish – Bio
Senior Family Advocate
Originally from East Yorkshire, Helen now lives in Hampshire with her serving RN husband. She is a former Retail Manager and Local Authority Housing Benefits Officer, working alongside the Housing Options team.
Helen’s customer service skills are put to good use as she leads the NFF’s Families Advocacy Team as the senior families advocate. Helen is tenacious in supporting individual families and, having ‘lived the life’ relishes being in their corner. Helen is also the organisation’s policy lead for Accommodation and attends national meetings to inform service providers and the MOD about the housing maintenance and allocations issues affecting Royal Navy and Royal Marines’ families.
Helen joined the team three weeks before the first Covid lockdown and still managed to get to know everyone with her very popular weekly ‘Get to Know You’ questions.
