2018 Life in the RAF survey


Please share with us your views on YOUR quality of life in the RAF. We need the views of both serving personnel and their partners. Your evidence will help us inform among others, the Armed Forces Pay Review Body and the Senior Leadership of the RAF - and it will be used!

If you took part last year, have your views changed?

We welcome the good as well as the bad, so please take just five minutes of your time to help make our message even stronger.

Our latest reports

Our reports section online shares all federation reports prior to 2016.

Without you, we have no voice...

We are funded by the RAF but sit outside the Chain of Command as an independent organisation. We provide a voice for the issues and concerns you have about life in the RAF, and we have direct access to senior RAF and MOD staffs as well as DIO and Government Ministers.

We will always maintain your anonymity and respect your privacy.

Together with your feedback, we can help influence positive change.

Our surveys are complete for this year. Please take part in our surveys next year, if you sign up to our eBULLETIN, (click on the subscribe tab), you'll receive notification when they recommence.

Our Reports are proof that we use your evidence to influence change and available online in electronic format, or you can request a hard copy sent to you by contacting us on

We collect evidence in all sorts of ways

Voting pads


Our Evidence Team can come to you on your Station and run really short, snappy interactive workshops using voting pads. Allow an hour per workshop and learn more about how the Families Federation can help you too.

Online, in your own time

We have various short surveys available online where you simply click in and whiz down through the survey. Takes 5 minutes! We can't see who the results are from either; only the Station you are from so we can address potential key issues in regional locations.

Have an idea for a survey?

Contact the RAF FF team to share any ideas on what areas you think we should investigate more and we'll investigate further.
