Working towards true representation for armed forces personnel

Welcome to British Armed Forces Federation - BAFF - the only independent representative all-ranks staff association open to serving members of any branch of the Royal Navy, Royal Marines, British Army and Royal Air Force, including the reserves. All UK forces personnel of any rank are eligible to join and, as BAFF is not a political organisation, to take an active part in its activities if they wish. Former members of the regular or reserve forces are also welcome.

BAFF applauds the best service charities, respects the role of the Armed Forces Pay Review Body, supports the work of the Service Complaints Ombudsman, and continues its campaign for legal recognition of sensible representative arrangements for armed forces personnel, as in an armed forces representative body.


1 quote about representation

" The MOD recognises the British Armed Forces Federation and other such organisations as effective mechanisms by which the views of service personnel can become known. Service personnel are free to join them, provided they do not take a particularly active part in any political activity. To be honest, we are not aware of any groundswell of opinion from members of our armed forces that the remit of the armed forces federations should be extended or that they should be established on a statutory basis. "
Mark Lancaster MP, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Defence, Armed Forces Bill debate, 15 Oct 2015
