About Us

The Diplomatic Service Families Association (DSFA) is the family support service for the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO).

The DSFA provides specialist advice, information and support services for the spouses/partners of Diplomatic Officers posted overseas and in the UK. Our support is tailored to help diplomatic partners navigate the unique challenges of a globally mobile lifestyle.

The DSFA consults with, and lobbies the FCO Administration on behalf of DSFA members. We represent all families when consulting the FCO Administration about policies which may affect the families of Diplomatic Officers. Therefore, it is important that we maintain active contact with our membership.

For information on how to register with the DSFA, see the DSFA Membership page.

At Post:  
The Community Liaison Officer (CLO) is the DSFA representative at Post and provides information, help and support to all UK-based staff and families. The CLO represents families by sitting on the Post Management Committee, Post Housing Committee, Post Security Committee and the Post Entertainment Committee.

At home:  The DSFA has 13 members of staff, working in London and remotely from other Posts.
