We work to represent the interests of the Armed Forces within the Conservative Party. We aim to facilitate a greater understanding amongst those who support the armed forces, as well as those serving within the military, of the effect of political policies on service personnel and the capabilities that they depend upon.


Conservative Friends of the Armed Forces’ values are grounded in our shared purpose of ensuring positive policies and political understanding for all those who are currently serving, and have served, in the British and Commonwealth Armed Forces.
