Royal Navy: Welfare Information Support Teams

Welfare Information Support

The Welfare Information Support Team is the first port of call for the Service Personnel and their families and friends who are looking for the advice, support and resources they need to deal with the rigours of life in the Royal Navy. These demands go beyond those of civilian life, such as pressures that come with separation from family and friends, or the potential dangers of deployment, to name just two. 

The resources delivered by the Welfare Information Support Team ensure that Service Personnel look our for, and after each other, and that they're more than the sum of their parts - and that they meet the Royal Navy objective to: "...provide accessible support services that strengthen and enhance the resilience and resourcefulness of Naval Service personnel, their families and communities."

Portsmouth (HMS Nelson): The Portsmouth Information Office, located within HMS Nelson, exists to provide bespoke information to the Service Community throughout Portsmouth and the surrounding areas.

Your Information Support Officers are: Lauren Halpin (Outreach Support) and Sara Joyce.

Get in touch:
