Armed Forces Families

Joining Forces for Families

What is Joining Forces for Families?

Joining Forces for Families (JFFF) is a project funded by the Armed Forces Covenant and delivered by Citizens Advice

Hart, Rushmoor Citizens Advice and Portsmouth Citizens Advice. It is aimed at helping serving personnel and their families when they encounter life’s stressful events.

The service operates through a referral process (see form below)

Once referred, clients will be contacted initially by a JFFF assessor trained to deal with more straightforward cases. For more complex needs these cases will be escalated and appointed to a dedicated adviser/ caseworker who will see the client and any family members either at the armed forces base such as a HiVE or a neutral outreach location such as local bureau or other agreed location.

Volunteer with us!

We are currently looking to recruit Families Champions to assist the project and help military families in need. If you, or anyone you know, has some time to spare and would be interested in finding out more, get in touch! We’d love to hear from you.
