The National Association of Catholic Families is a lay organisation that aims to offer mutual support for Roman Catholic families in maintaining a Catholic faith in "a culture which is now at war with our values".[citation needed]

The NACF is an attempt to bear witness to families, and it bases its work on a number of documents among them, Familiaris consortio, The Holy See's Charter of the Rights of the Family and Evangelium Vitae.

The NACF has branches in the United Kingdom (where it is based), Australia, the United States and India.

The NACF is primarily a social movement, although its loyalty to the Catholic Church's teachings and its focus on family values often leads to a more conservative political and religious outlook.
