DMWS currently operates across the UK and Cyprus. DMWS Welfare officers and staff are located within NHS Trusts in hospitals and communities and provide welfare support to the armed forces, veterans, NHS staff, emergency services, The Merchant Navy & their immediate family. We also provide a UK wide telephone welfare support service via the DMWS Emergency Response Service.

We respond to civilian crisis, national emergency and military deployment. Since 1943 our welfare officers have deployed alongside the military to provide help and support in field hospitals during all major conflicts.
