Welfare and Support

A soldier receiving confidential, personal support

The Army takes the welfare of its soldiers and their families very seriously and offers a wide range of support.

Army Welfare Service
Much of the support available to Army personnel and their families is given through the Army Welfare Service (AWS), a professional and confidential welfare support service for servicemen and women and their families, wherever they are located.

The Army Welfare Service has three main tasks: Community Support, Personal Support and HIVE information services.

Chaplaincy Support
Chaplaincy support is available for all family members of service personnel and those dealing with casualties.  This support is confidential and outside of the Chain of Command.  Chaplains provide support to all regardless of faith and can be contacted via the unit. If you wish to contact a Chaplain please email:
