Army Families Federation Appoints New Chief Executive

The Army Families Federation is independent of the British Army and works to improve the quality of life for service families.

The Army Families Federation (AFF) has appointed Collette Musgrave as its new Chief Executive.

Before joining the AFF in 2017, Ms Musgrave held positions at the Ministry of Defence, as well as in the Cabinet Office and HM Treasury, before serving as a Royal Air Force Officer for five years.

On her return to the civil service, she worked across numerous areas in defence, including service personnel policy and in Headquarters Field Army.

Ms Musgrave also completed the Royal College of Defence Studies course with an MA in strategic studies.

Julia Warren, chair of trustees at the AFF, said she was "very pleased" to announce Ms Musgrave's appointment, adding she has the "skill and experience to build on the excellent work of her predecessor".

Ms Musgrave, who had previously been the AFF’s operations director, said she was "honoured" to take the role, and said the AFF will "continue to work hard on behalf of all Army families to ensure their voice is heard".

"Everyone at AFF is committed to improving the quality of life for Army families, through providing advice and guidance, and pressing for policy change – I am proud to be working with a dedicated and experienced team," Ms Musgrave added.

The AFF is independent of the British Army and offers confidential advice, as well as working to improve the quality of life for forces families.
