About the RAF Community Forum

The RAF Community Forum is a means of gathering feedback from the RAF personnel and family on the key challenges that affect the community. It provides the RAFFF with qualitative data on key themes, adding depth to survey findings.

The RAFFF then take this information and present it as evidence, anonymised, to the RAF hierarchy, Government ministers and other organisations, to influence positive changes on behalf of the RAF community.
