DMWS is a member of Cobseo: The Confederation of Service Charities, which represents the needs of the whole Serving and Veterans Community. 

We believe that by actively participating in the activities of the Confederation, and working collaboratively with other members, we are working to optimise the impact all members can have on those they seek to assist. This is achieved by avoiding duplication of effort, joining up the various areas of help and support available to develop coherent pathways for those in need, and looking for ways to optimise spending in an ever increasingly tough financial environment.

In pursuit of this, DMWS is an elected member of the Cobseo Executive Committee and works closely with Cobseo, providing further direct support through the Chief Executive giving time to Chair the Cobseo Finance Committee and in working closely as a Strategic Partner alongside Cobseo in the delivery of the Positive Pathways Programme.

Membership is open to Charities who promote and further the welfare and general interests of the Armed Forces Community.

It is the positive and proactive participation from charities such as DMWS that enables Cobseo to maximise its impact representing and supporting the Armed Forces Community.
