ARMY WELFARE SERVICE

ARMY WELFARE SERVICE – PERSONAL SUPPORT

The Army Welfare Service (AWS) Personal Support Team is the Army’s professional welfare provider offering a comprehensive, confidential and specialised service.
AWS is the secondary level of welfare support available to serving soldiers and their families when difficulties cannot be dealt with, or must not be dealt with, within the Unit. Trained Army Welfare Workers offer support, advice and guidance to those who are experiencing personal or family difficulties. This covers a wide range of situations including :-

  • Difficulties arising from personal relationships
  • Separation
  • Inability to cope – stress / crisis
  • Loss and bereavement
  • Social issues arising from mental and physical ill health
  • Problems arising from deployment
  • Supporting families who are working with statutory agencies

An Army Welfare Service office is based within Dreghorn Barracks, Edinburgh, which covers all south and central Scotland
