Our Welfare Officers make us what we are:
A high-quality medical welfare service provider
Our specialist knowledge, rooted in operational experience, means that DMWS Welfare Officers have a deep understanding of working with Armed Forces personnel and their families, as well as with veterans, and increasingly other uniformed services including the Police Force and the Probation Service.
Our Welfare Officers are experts in their field, drawn from a variety of backgrounds including healthcare, social work and counselling, and many are veterans of the Armed Forces and the Police as well as military spouses. They deliver a high quality welfare service, often dealing with highly complex cases in pressured circumstances. They are our most valuable asset.
For our Welfare Officers to deliver the best service, we need to look after them. We actively encourage staff development both personally and professionally. DMWS Welfare Officers all gain a Level 3 Diploma in Welfare Studies accredited by the Institute of Welfare and are qualified in Mental Health First Aid. Our Welfare Officers make us what we are – a high-quality medical welfare service provider.
