The RAF Association is established to promote, through the comradeship engendered by its members, the welfare by charitable means of all serving and former members of our Air Forces, their spouses and dependants, together with the widows and dependents of those who died whilst serving or subsequently.

Royal Airforce Assoc. has been active in Romford since 1945 and their Romford Branch has been based in Carlton Road since the early 1950’s. It is supported by a well-established social club which helps to raise funds for the association.

The current RAFA Club building was originally built in 1881 as a Town House for a Surgeon, it was called Carlton House, from which Carlton Road was named.
