The Naval Families Federation (NFF) was established in 2003 to give Royal Naval and Royal Marines’ families an independent voice. The impact of separation and mobility on Naval Service families may present challenges that are not commonly experienced by a civilian population.
The NFF works with the Chain of Command, service providers and the Government in order to make them fully aware of the consequences their policies and decisions make on the naval Service family as a whole. This representation keeps us in line with the other two Services and ensures that Naval Service families’ differences are acknowledged and understood.
The Naval Families Federation works from Castaway House in Portsmouth, alongside principal Royal Navy charities.
The families of Royal Naval and Royal Marines’ personnel are independent, resourceful people who may be experiencing issues that are affecting their day to day life and think they are unable to voice them. In a constructive diplomatic way we would like to help them do just that!
The NFF produce a free magazine called 'Homeport', which contains useful information for Service families. Homeport is distributed by the Royal Navy and Royal Marines to naval families worldwide. If you would like a copy please pop into the NFF office or complete the online contact form.
